Man in possession of stolen truck arrestedJanuary 18, 2019
From Local Sources
BIRDSEYE — A man in possession of a truck later determined to have been stolen was placed under arrest Thursday.
The Dubois County Sheriff’s Department was called at 6:19 a.m. to conduct a welfare check on a man reported to possibly be passed out in a Dodge flatbed truck parked at a Birdseye business location.
The subject, Kyle A. Haley, 26, French Lick, was awake when officers arrived but it was determined his license was suspended. Also, police said, he could not present a vehicle registration and the freshly painted black Dodge truck had a license plate registered to a General Motors product.
The sheriff’s department gave Haley a courtesy transport to a friend’s house in the Birdseye area after telling him the truck would be towed because of false and ficticious plates and his suspended license.
Later, police said, an original VIN sticker was located in the truck. It showed the vehicle was a maroon 1996 Dodge reported stolen Jan. 4.
Police also said the VIN number that should have been on the vehicle’s engine block had been scratched off.
When questioned, according to authorities, Haley allegedly stated he knew the vehicle was stolen.
Authorities booked Haley into the Dubois County Security Center at 12:32 p.m. on a preliminary Level 6 felony count of theft.
