Woodruff Police are searching for a 2000 Mercury Grand Marquis that was reported stolen early Monday morning.

The report of this theft was one of a string of reported thefts and attempted thefts in Woodruff that started late Sunday, Oct. 7, and continued into the early morning hours of Monday, Oct. 8.

According to the police report, the vehicle had been parked near a residence on Fifth Avenue, was unlocked and had the keys in the ignition switch at the time it was stolen. 

Not long before police had received that call they received a call from another Woodruff resident saying his 2008 Honda Ridgeline pickup truck had been stolen.

The truck was recovered a short time later across the street a couple blocks from where the Grand Marquis was stolen. 

The truck’s fuel indicator was on empty. It had tools in it but nothing appeared to be missing.

It all seemed to begin with a call from a resident on Woodruff’s Forest Circle late on the night of Oct. 7. That caller reported to police it appeared someone was in her 1998 Plymouth Voyager minivan and attempting to steal it. 

A few hours later, at around two in the morning on Oct. 8, police received a report from a residence on Fourth Avenue that an iPod and and GPS device had been stolen from a 2011 Toyota Camry, which was unlocked. 

Woodruff police urge residents to do what they can to prevent vehicle theft, beginning with removing the keys from the ignition switch and locking the vehicle.
