According to Lt. Jennifer Ross, “Officers … responded to two locations in Oakhurst this morning (March 27) regarding stolen tires/rims Tires/rims [that ] were reported stolen from vehicles in the 500 block of McKoy Street and 100 block of Spring Street.”

In an apparently unrelated incident that happened nearby, a man was arrested on charges of DUI and intent to distribute marijuana after his Camaro got stuck on a ditch.

At around 4:49 a.m. on March 27, officers responded to a motorist assist call in the 300 block of West Davis Street.

According to Ross, the officer “arrived and located a Chevrolet Camaro lodged on the cement driveway of the residence located at the dead end, with the two front tires hanging over into a ditch.”

“The driver, 33-year-old Adam Young of Locust Grove, was arrested and charged with DUI, failure to maintain lane, possession of marijuana with intent to distribute, possession of a firearm during the commission of a felony, theft by receiving stolen property (stolen firearm) and open container,” Ross said.
