Recovery of stolen vehicle

By the I-R Staff

WILSON - The Ellsworth County Sheriff’s Office is investigating the recovery of a stolen vehicle along with the report of suspicious persons in the Wilson vicinity.

According to Sheriff Murray Marston, deputies recovered a stolen vehicle at 8:45 p.m. Tuesday on the south end of Wilson just outside of the city limits.

“Somebody had dumped it there,” Marston said.

Marston did not confirm where the vehicle was found and declined to comment on the exact year and model of the vehicle because he had not seen the report.

At 10:30 a.m. Wednesday, the sheriff’s office received a report of suspicious persons (a male and female) in Wilson.

Marston didn’t know if the report of suspicious persons was related to the recovered stolen vehicle or not.

“There is just so much confusing information,” he said.

Marston did confirm, as did dispatch, that at 11:53 a.m. Wednesday, the sheriff’s office sent out a message via its Mass Notification Program notifying Wilson residents that law enforcement were searching for a white male and female in light clothing in the southwest corner of Wilson and the outskirts of the community. The message advised that if the individuals are seen, 911 should be called and no attempt be made to approach them.

Marston said no one was found and the search was ended at 1 p.m. Wednesday. The case remains under investigation.
