Stolen car investigation continues

Dougherty County Police continue to investigate a stolen car dumped into Lake Chehaw off Lover's Lane Road Tuesday.

A resident found the 2010 Jeep Compass partially submerged in the lake when she arrived home about 5:45.

Investigators say it was stolen Sunday or Monday from Mahalia Huie in Savannah.

Lt. Chad Kirkpatrick said "We have recovered some fingerprints from the vehicle, and we are in the process of getting them over the AFIS so they can be processed.  To see if we can find out who was in this vehicle or stole it."

Investigators say the only thing found inside the stolen car was mail.

The car was valued at $8500.
