Pick up truck stolen in Henderson; Evansville teen arrested in Dubois Co. with hitchhikers in tow | Crime
A vehicle that was stolen out of Henderson was recovered on I-64 around midnight Tuesday.
Kentucky State Police say they received information that a stolen 2006 Chevrolet pick-up truck was traveling east on I-64. The Indiana State Police Region III Dispatch Center placed a dispatch to all Southwest Indiana law enforcement agencies to be on the lookout for the vehicle.
Hearing the dispatch, Dubois County Deputy Mike Hanselman traveled to the interstate to observe for the vehicle. At approximately 11:52 p.m. EDT Deputy Hanselman observed the vehicle. As he began to follow it, the driver, Mark L. Davis, 18, of Evansville drove the truck into the eastbound rest park located at the 58 mile marker and stopped.
Shortly after the truck pulled into the rest park, Trooper Brock Werne and Officers from the Ferdinand and Dale Police Departments arrived to assist. Through the investigation it was determined that the Silver 2006 Chevrolet truck had been stolen out of Henderson.
The truck was occupied by three people. Officers were able to determine that the two passengers were hitchhikers that Davis had picked up and both of them were released. Davis, however, was taken into custody without incident and transported to the Spencer County Jail by Trooper Werne and charged with Possession of Stolen Property.
