Cedar Rapid Juvenile Snatches Truck in Mount Pleasant

A truck was stolen from Mount Pleasant on Wednesday morning. Just after 12:30am, the Mt. Pleasant Police Department was advised of a stolen truck from the 1300 block of E Haynes Ct in Mt Pleasant IA.

Then, at 3:17am, a juvenile female from Cedar Rapids turned herself in as she had been separated from the other juveniles that had stolen the truck. Upon investigation it was determined that the group of juveniles from Cedar Rapids and Mt Pleasant had stolen the truck before heading to Winfield to partake in more car burglaries. The juveniles then stole a car from Winfield and came back to Mt Pleasant.

The juvenile was charged with Theft 1st, a Class C Felony and transported to a facility. The others were not located yet and the investigation is ongoing and more charges are expected.

At approximately 7:45 hours, both stolen vehicles were located in Mt Pleasant and processed and turned back over to the owners.

The Mt Pleasant PD was assisted by the Henry County Sheriff’s Office and Winfield PD.  Once again, we remind citizens to lock their vehicles and buildings.
