A vehicle discovered early Tuesday in the Kansas River near the North Eighth Street boat ramp later was recovered by Douglas County dive team members.

The 2001 Chrysler minivan was towed out of the water. It had been reported stolen by James Gang Automotive about 7:30 a.m. Tuesday. No one was found in the vehicle, said sheriff's office spokeswoman Lt. Kari Wempe.

"Sounds a little weird to steal a car and dump it a mile away."

Kids do that kind of thing. I'm amazed at how many crimes are committed by teens in the wee hours. If my kid's not home with me at 3:00 a.m., I'm out looking for them.

Stole it in a moment of weakness. Realized they'd stolen a Minivan. ECH!

Too bad they didn't find the van underwater with the theif still inside.

Someone upset with James Gang? James gangs is like a mile from where the van was found. Sounds a little weird to steal a car and dump it a mile away.
