Stolen Truck

Posted on 28th June 2010 at 07:53

Scott Eugene Collins, 42, of Castle Rock is under arrest on a number of charges, after he supposedly crashed a stolen pickup at a home on Holcomb Spur Road. Shortly after 8 yesterday morning, a man living in the 200 block of Holcomb Spur reported that a man had run over some square steel tubing in his yard, and was now stuck. The driver reportedly said that he didn’t know what had happened, and eventually started walking away. Deputies stopped Collins a short distance from the home, and identified him as the driver. A check of the truck showed that the ignition had been punched, and the steering column had been torn apart. Further checking shows that the truck had been stolen from Third Avenue in Longview. Collins was arrested for possession of a stolen car, obstructing an officer and no valid operator’s license; he’s now being held on bail of $30,000.
