Sheriff’s Deputy locates stolen vehicle on patrol before the car is reported stolen by dealership. On November 3rd, 2023, at 8:00 a.m. Deputy H. Francis was conducting patrol through the area of S. Spring Road near Caraway Lane when she observed a newer black 2019 Ford Escape with dealer plates from Tower Ford. The vehicle did not have an Oregon DMV temporary tag. Due to patrolling the area frequently, Deputy Francis noted this was very odd, and the vehicle was partly parked in the roadway of S. Spring Road. Deputy Francis inquired from local law enforcement agencies and residents in the area to determine vehicle ownership. Deputy Francis was advised no one knew the vehicle’s owner, and none of the locals owned it. Deputy Francis ultimately decided to have the car towed from the location due to her investigation. Later that day, Deputy T. Hansen contacted Tower Ford and advised them of the odd circumstances surrounding the Ford Escape. After providing Tower Ford with the vehicle identification number (VIN), they checked their inventory and noticed the vehicle had been stolen. Tower Ford was advised the now recovered stolen vehicle was located at Mast Brothers in Coos Bay and would be available for them to reclaim at their leisure.
