No leads yet in probe of rental theft

SoVaNow.com / February 21, 2013
The South Boston Police Department has gotten “no hits” in its investigation of the theft of a silver 2012 Toyota Camry, taken from Enterprise Rent-A-Car more than a week ago.

According to the report of the investigating Officer Joey Throckmorton, a spokesman for Enterprise called to report the theft early on Monday, Feb. 11. He told officers that the theft must have occurred sometime during the period of Sunday, Feb. 10 at 4:45 p.m. and early Monday morning.

The vehicle was valued at $16,000.

In addition to the theft of the vehicle, the culprit had also stolen a drop-off box (valued at $600) containing the keys to several other vehicles on the lot.

The stolen vehicle was entered into the NCIC (National Crime Information Center) according to the police report, but as yet no matches have been found.

On the following day, Feb. 12, Officer J. Berry, who was making a routine check around the town, noticed that a large front window had been broken at the Enterprise office at Wilborn Avenue. A large rock was found inside the building.

Berry’s report noted, however, that no entry seemed to have been made into the office. No arrests have yet been made in the case.
