A man who said he parked his truck by the roadway on River Gorge Drive in Lookout Valley and then went four-wheeling said he returned to find the driver's side of his vehicle burned and his gas siphoned.
Blake Snyder said he left his Ford F250 near Hawks Nest Drive.
When he got back from his outing on nearby Aetna Mountain, he said he found the fire department putting out a brush fire by his truck. He said his vehicle still runs, but it has some $7,000 in damage on the exterior from the fire.
He said when he left he had half a gallon of gas, but he found it was gone when he tried to leave.
That section at Black Creek (formerly Cummings Cove) has seen constant friction between property owners and those going four-wheeling.
