A stolen vehicle valued at $15,000 was recovered in the Hickory Tavern area yesterday morning. The Laurens County Sheriff’s Office was dispatched to 10,002 Neely Ferry Road at 11:07 am to check on a vehicle discovered abandoned, parked on the shoulder of the road. On arrival, Deputy Paul Max Bollman II reported noting a missing license plate and that the right rear passenger window was broken on the 2007 Toyota 4-runner.
The ignition switch had also been pried down. The Sheriff’s office ran a ‘ten minute hit’ on the vehicle and learned that Easley Police had a report of it being stolen. The vehicle was towed to the Laurens County impound lot for further processing.
