Clarke County Sheriff Deputies responded to a call this morning at the Pachuta Travel Plaza after a vehicle which was reported stolen out of Columbus, Mississippi and was located in Clarke County.

According to Officials, the white van (pictured below) was taken without permission from a service station in Columbus (Lowndes County, MS) and was being digitally tracked by GPS to the Pachuta Travel Plaza just off Interstate 59.

Once Deputies arrived on scene in Pachuta, the vehicle in question was found sitting behind the store with no one in or around it. Investigators are working to determine who and how the vehicle ended up in Pachuta, Mississippi.

Scott’s Wrecker Service was called to recover the vehicle.

CCHT will post more on this developing story as more details become available.
