Due to the time of the day and lots of expensive equipment on the construction site, Deputy Phillips thought it was unusual for anyone to be on the property. Deputy Phillips observed a white in color Dodge pickup truck. Deputy Phillips got out of the vehicle and noticed three white males that were occupied in the vehicle. Deputy Phillips told the driver this was private property and he was not allowed to be on the site. Deputy Phillips then asked the driver what he was doing there.

Deputy Phillips then ran the VIN of the White Dodge Truck through Gordon County 911. Gordon County 911 advised it was a White in color 2009 Dodge 1500 and that the vehicle had been stolen.
