For the second time in under a week law enforcement is investigating a stolen vehicle in the Village of Lake Linden. The one taken early Sunday was located, abandoned, a day later in Calumet and no arrest was made. That case was initiated by the Houghton County Sheriff’s Office.
The latest theft occurred between 10 PM Monday night and 7:30 AM Tuesday morning. Missing is a 2001 Lincoln Town Car with the license plate EMB-8852. It is burgundy and has some visible damage to the front end and driver’s side. The owner had left the keys in the Town Car the last time it was used.
Lake Linden Chief of Police Thomas Rosemurgy says the two are probably not connected.
He notes that the holidays are a seasonal period that tends to see an uptick in vehicle thefts and gives some tips to help keep the crime from affecting you.
If you have any information, you can call the Lake Linden Police Department or 911 to report it.
