Stolen car recovered from Kansas River

July 1, 2006


A car reported stolen early Friday was found several hours later abandoned in the Kansas River at Riverfront Park.

The car, a 2004 Chevrolet Cavalier, was seen in the water about 8:45 a.m. by Lawrence Parks and Recreation Department workers, a Douglas County Sheriff's Office spokeswoman said. It was about 70 feet from the east bank.

Lawrence-Douglas County Fire & Medical, the Douglas County underwater search and recovery team, and Lawrence Police responded to the call. No one was thought to have been injured.

A 21-year-old Lawrence woman reported to police the car was taken from the 300 block of Minnesota Street. It had been stolen and recovered twice before, the sheriff's office said.

Stolen twice before? I guess the third strike means that chevy is finally out.
