OFFENSE: Recovered Stolen Motor Vehicle
CASE #: 2020-2328
During a vehicle title inspection, which is required by state law when a vehicle is purchased outside of the State of Nebraska and a title is sought to be obtained the Gage County Sheriff’s Office recovered a motor vehicle that had been reported stolen out of Kansas City, Missouri in February 2018.
The person seeking to obtain the title is not a suspect in the theft and had purchased the vehicle online through a salvage company. The clerical staff ran the required check of the vehicle identification number (VIN) and when they received notice the vehicle had been reported stolen, they contacted a Gage County Sheriff’s Office investigator to respond to the sheriff’s office.
Southeast Communications confirmed the stolen motor vehicle status with the Kansas City (Missouri) Police Department. The vehicle was impounded by the sheriff’s office and will be returned to the owner/agency who has the claim on it.
