A vehicle stolen last night in Cleveland was pulled from the Trinity River on FM 787 near Romayor around 11:30 a.m. Friday, according to Pct. 5 Constable David Hunter.
The vehicle – a 2008 black Chevy pickup truck – was discovered in the river earlier today by a Texas Department of Transportation employee, who was inspecting the river bridges after the recent flooding, Hunter said. The truck was unoccupied.
“It appears that whoever stole the vehicle drove it here, put it in neutral and pushed it into the river,” the constable said.
The truck was pulled from the river by Jesse Burch using a large wrecker owned by Smith Towing Company.
