UPDATE: A car that was reported stolen on last week’s Crime Stoppers Crime of the Week is found damaged in a field.
Saline County Sheriff Roger Soldan tells KSAL News that a hunter found the 1968 Chevy Camaro SS abandoned in field near the intersection of Crittendon Rd. and Farrelly Rd.–or just south of Brookville– on Friday at 9 a.m.
Police say that between Sept. 26 and Sept. 28, the car was stolen from a warehouse in the 400 block of N. 5th St., Salina. The vehicle was not parked in the field the prior day to its discovery, so authorities believe that it had been left sometime between Thursday and Friday.
The vehicle has since been returned to its owner, however, there appears to be damage to the engine as there is some oil leaking. It is valued at $30,000.
There are no suspects currently.
