One of three stolen snowplow pickups is found in Pontiac
One of the three pickups stolen from Reinert & Bender Auto Repair and Towing has been recovered.
Oakland County Sheriff’s Department deputies contacted the Frankenmuth Police Department Sunday evening, December 9. The 1999 Ford F-250 Super Duty pickup was discovered abandoned in the City of Pontiac.
The truck was intact; however, the Boss V-shaped snow plow was missing. The truck was brought back to the FPD December 10 where an evidence technician is going over it, looking for more evidence as to who might have stolen the vehicle.
Two other pickups with snow plows were stolen from R & B between 5:25pm and 9:12pm on Sunday, December 2. Still missing is a 2002 Dodge Ram 2500, red in color with a blue rear lift gate, a straight-blade snow plow and decal “S-21” on the driver’s side fender.
The other at-large truck is a 1998 Dodge Ram 1500, black in color with a Boss straight-blade snow plow with a driver’s side decal of “S-11.”
The suspects are described as two white males wearing dark clothes with hoods, blue jeans and brown work boots. Persons with information are asked to call the FPD at 652-8371.
In other FPD news, officers responded to a two-vehicle crash on South Main Street, near Eischer Road, around 3:50pm Sunday, December 9.
FPD Sergeant Tony McLaughlin said a 69-year-old Westerville, Ohio female was attempting to make a left-hand turn out of Bronner’s CHRISTmas Wonderland and struck a southbound vehicle driven by a 49-year-old Birch Run male, who tried to swerve to avoid contact.
The Westerville woman also had a 65-year-old Westerville male as passenger while the Birch Run driver had two passengers, a 44-year-old Birch Run female and a 14-year-old Birch Run female.
Both vehicles suffered minor damage and were driven away from the scene. There were no injuries. The 69-year-old Westerville female received a verbal warning from the FPD officers.
Shortly before 5:30pm on Tuesday, December 4, officers made a fugitive arrest at a home in the 200 block of East Genesee Street.
Officers were there for a civil dispute over a court-ordered child visitation case. Officers entered the woman’s name into its Law Enforcement Information Network (LEIN). Her name came back linked to a warrant out of Genesee County for child neglect. She was lodged in the Saginaw County Jail.
