On Friday morning a report of
a car fire had police responding to County road 100N, just west
of Versailles. When Indiana State Police Trooper Jimmy Wells
arrived, he found a vehicle in the ditch that was completely
burned, but was still smoldering.
According to information from Sgt. Noel Houze Jr., public information
officer for the Indiana State Police, Versailles Post, the vehicle
was a blue 2002 Ford Explorer that had been reported stolen
from the Indianapolis area on January 27. He noted that the
vehicle had apparently been in the ditch for several hours before
it was reported to police. I dont know why it hadnt
been noticed by anyone earlier, noted Trooper Wells.
If anyone has any information or may have noticed the vehicle
in the area of US 421, County Road 100N, or Tanglewood Road
last Thursday, January 8, or in the early morning hours of Friday,
January 9 Trooper Wells would like to hear from them. They can
contact Trooper Wells at the Indiana State Police Post in Versailles
at 812-689-5000 or 1-800-566-6704.
