Public urged to be on look out for van
The Alexander County Sheriff’s Office is warning local residents of a suspicious vehicle that has been implicated in several recent thefts from residences.
The vehicle is described as a grey or blue/grey Dodge van, late 1990s or early 2000s model, possibly with out-of-state registration plates. The van has some body damage and possibly has the driver-side door tied shut.
The vehicle has been seen operated by a young white female with a white male passenger. The pair has been spotted pulling into driveways and then taking small items from homes and garages. The van was spotted on Monday, June 10, in the Black Oak Ridge Rd. and Vashti area and was spotted Tuesday morning, June 11, on Church Rd. near Rink Dam Rd., where several items were taken from a garage.
Citizens are asked to be on the lookout for this vehicle and to call the Sheriff’s Office immediately if spotted. Callers may report sightings by calling 828-632-4658.
