Stolen vehicle turns up in Lincoln

A 1998 Pontiac Firebird previously reported as stolen by owner Troy A. Well of Springfield turned up in Lincoln last Thursday morning.

According to the police report, at approximately 5:15 a.m. the vehicle with an unknown driver was at the intersection of First and South Monroe, heading east.

Police observed tire marks on the roadway indicating the vehicle had spun its rear wheels and fishtailed at the intersection, leaving the road on the south side and striking a telephone switch box.

The driver then proceeded three blocks to the east on First, where he or she then abandoned the vehicle.
