    Jeffery Rawlinson went to the police station on Saturday around 1pm to report his stolen vehicle 2002 Jeep Cherokee, stolen from Maunie. That seemed to have slipped the News. He was not arrested at his residence but was at the Police Station reporting a crime. The case as listed above reflects a different light on the story and is not correct.

    That tends to happens quite a bit. It’s messed up that the stolen vehicle was the main subject only to have it played down by the warrent arrest. So had ther been an update in the stolen vehicle. Has it been recovered or has the person or person’s responsible been identified.
