Stolen vehicle recovered

NICOLE NORRIS/THE GREENVILLE STANDARD

Greenville Police Department responded to Sherling Lake last week in response to a suspicious person. When the officers arrived, the suspicious person was gone; the caretaker at Sherling Lake was able to get a vehicle description.

Officers later confirmed that the car was stolen out of Milton Fla. and was found a short time later sitting in the Walmart parking lot. An undercover officer went into the store where he found and tracked the suspect until he returned to the vehicle.

The suspect and a woman he was with were arrested and charged with first-degree receiving stolen property. They were identified as Jacob Dewitt, 32, and Taylor Townsend, 21, both of Atlanta.

Both are being held in the Butler County Jail. Lovvorn said the suspects are also facing additional charges out of Florida.
