Wednesday, July 12, 2006

A truck reported stolen in April from Cape Girardeau was found Tuesday afternoon in the Mississippi River off a local boat dock. The vehicle was found around 1:42 p.m. by a caretaker of the Red Star Boat Dock, according to police Sgt. Barry Hovis. The truck, pulled from the river by 4:10 p.m., appeared to have been submerged for an "extended period of time," Hovis said. The truck was reported stolen April 5 from 501 S. Middle St. Police have no suspects.
