Stolen vehicle from Cass County recovered in Rich Hill

On 8/2/2022 Deputies from the Bates County Sheriff's Office received a tip in reference to a possible stolen vehicle at 203 W Chestnut Rich Hill Missouri.

On arrival Deputies made contact with the property owner and observed the truck. Deputies advised the male subject of the possibility of the truck being stolen. The male subject provided a title with the VIN numbers that matched the VIN on the dash.

The Title showed the truck to be an F250 and the truck was an F350. A closer inspection of the truck showed the VIN number was tampered. The title and the truck were taken into evidence to determine the proper VIN number.

An inspection of the truck revealed the true VIN number and that truck was stolen out of the Pleasant Hill Mo area. Cass County Sheriff's Office was contacted and will join the investigation into determining who stole the truck.

Charges are being forwarded to the Prosecuting Attorney in reference to the stolen vehicle.
