Stolen vehicle recovered from river

Home Crime News Stolen vehicle recovered from river
A late model SUV found floating in the Sacramento River last Wednesday turned out to be stolen from Live Oak, according to the California Highway Patrol.
The Williams CHP and the state’s auto theft division so far have no leads on the alleged thief or thieves, said Sgt. Dave Corona, but the matter is still under investigation.
The Colusa County Sheriff’s Office initially received the call on July 12, when the 2016 Nissan SUV floated past Rocco’s on the River around lunchtime.
The SUV was secured east of Colusa Landing and the Sheriff’s dive team probed the vehicle for a possible occupant, but found none, the CHP said.
“The vehicle was unoccupied,” Corona said.
Although the SUV still had paper license plates, Corona said the Nissan was traced to a Live Oak resident, who had earlier reported the vehicle stolen after coming home and finding it gone.
“The owners found broken glass where the vehicle was supposed to be,” Corona said.
Corona said the SUV had been stripped of miscellaneous parts before it has been dumped or driven into the river somewhere up stream.
According to the CHP, the agency’s Vehicle Theft Information System is an integral part of the comprehensive Vehicle Theft Control Program.
The information available through this system assists vehicle theft investigators in analyzing specific data regarding theft and recovery trends, movement of vehicles, and the condition of recovered vehicles, the CHP said.
The CHP, which publishes an annual report of vehicle theft statistical data, reports that 39 vehicles were reported stolen in Colusa County in 2016, down from 45 the prior year, with Honda, Acura and Nissan being the most common make of vehicle stolen. Sutter County had 577 vehicles reported stolen in 2016, up from 496.
About 96.3 percent of stolen vehicles in California are recovered, oftentimes stripped of their removable parts, the CHP said. ■
