Dalton Police Seek Information In Case Where Antique Truck Was Towed

Thursday, August 8, 2013

Dalton Police are seeking information in a case where an antique truck was towed on July 28. It was originally thought the truck was stolen.

However, the driver of the tow truck involved saw a news report with the picture of his truck that night and called a Dalton detective and told him that he was hired to tow the truck from Dalton to Chattanooga by a man who claimed he’d bought it. He produced a bill of sale, which the tow truck driver photographed and showed to our detective. The tow truck driver took the detective to the location in Chattanooga where he delivered the pickup truck.  

The resident there claimed he had sold the truck to a resident of Murray County, and when detectives went to check the report, they found the stolen pickup abandoned on the side of the road.  It has been recovered and returned to the owner.  

Detectives are still investigating the case and are interviewing the people involved. No charges have been filed at this time. 

Detectives said the operator of the tow truck in this case is not suspected of any wrongdoing.

Proud To Be A Conservative Conservationist

We have stunning mountains, wild rivers and quiet backcountry. And many of ... (click for more)

Roy Exum: Why I Adore America

If Heather Cross weren’t married and didn’t have such a fine-looking family I’d swear I might propose. The dazzling lady just wrote a “By Gumbo! letter” to all the major news outlets in the world to inform them that half of the Pelican State is still submerged by “a 1,000-year flood” and where the heck are they with their cameras? She knows it is vital for the rest of America to ... (click for more)
