Coroner's stolen SUV found in Cape

Sunday, November 18, 2007

The bright red Chevrolet Yukon sport utility vehicle stolen from Perry County Coroner Herbert Miller's home last week was recovered Saturday in Cape Girardeau, police said.

The 2001 vehicle with official Perry County plates was taken from Miller's home Wednesday. The vehicle was found and returned to Miller, Officer Bryan Blanner said.

The Yukon was stocked with red lights, stretchers, radios and other equipment, but bore no markings other than the official license plate that would identify it as a county vehicle. At the time of the theft, Miller said he routinely kept the keys under the floor mat in case a deputy coroner needed it in a hurry.
