Sunk truck was stolen

January 3, 2007

Newton -- Members of the Lee County dive team were called to Baker County Wednesday morning to investigate a truck found submerged in the Flint River.

A Mitchell County Sheriff's Deputy found the truck during a routine patrol. The top of the Chevy Silverado's cab was just barely visible above the water.

Dive team members secured the truck so it could be removed from the river.  "We had one about a year and a half two years ago in the same spot, of course, they used the ramp to put the vehicle in the water," said Baker County Fire Chief Andy Belinc.

Nothing was found inside the truck. Turns out the vehicle had been stolen from Albany.
