Marquette County sheriff has truck stolen
MARQUETTE (AP) — When the Marquette County sheriff couldn’t find his marked pickup truck, he figured his deputies were playing a joke.
It was no joke: The Chevy Silverado really went missing Wednesday.
Minutes later, a Marquette County dispatcher reported the vehicle was in a ditch along Forestville Road in Marquette Township. A police dog tracked a man to a restroom at a nearby boat launch. He was then taken into custody and charged with unlawful driving away of an automobile, police said in a post on Facebook.
Sheriff Greg Zyburt thought he’d locked the truck and had his keys while a guest on the Sunny 101.9 morning radio show. Zyburt said he didn’t know the vehicle had an extra set.
“Lesson of the day: If it can happen to the sheriff, it can happen to you. Lock your vehicles,” the sheriff’s office stated on its Facebook page.
