Vanceburg Police Sgt. Joe Paul Gilbert is investigating the theft of a vehicle from Ideal Wheels Auto Sales when a man pretending to be a car dealer took it for a test drive and never returned it.
“We have a suspect in the case and he apparently has done this a number of times,” said Gilbert. “Each time he leaves the vehicle from the previous theft when he takes one for a test drive and doesn’t return.”
Gilbert said Ideal Wheels owner Kenny McCann reported the suspect drove onto his lot on Ky. Rt. 8 in Vanceburg and stated he was a car dealer from Ohio.
“The suspect reportedly told Mr. McCann he would like to test drive a vehicle and then drove off in a 2008 Ford Edge and didn’t return,” Gilbert said.
