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 don’t know why it hadn’t 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.
