Recover Stolen Vehicles


Sheriff Jimmy Harris states as follows:



            On December 11th the DeKalb County Sheriff’s Office followed up on a tip about a possible stolen U Haul truck behind a trailer on County Road 97. When Deputies and Investigators arrived at the residence they ran the tag and it came back that it had been reported stolen from a business on Highway 35 in Rainsville. The U Haul was recovered and returned back to the owner.

           The DeKalb County Sheriff’s Office received a tip about another vehicle in a field behind a residence between Rainsville and Sylvania. When deputies and Investigators arrived they ran the vehicle and the vehicle had been reported stolen 2 years ago from a residence in Dawson. The vehicle was also recovered.

            Both of these cases are still under investigation and anyone with any information pertaining to either of these cases please call the Sheriff’s Office at (256) 845-3801.

            Sheriff Harris says “Thanks to the citizen calling in these tips we were able to recover these two stolen vehicles. We are always following up on tips that comes into the Office even if they are years old. Thanks to the Deputies and Investigators they did a great job following up on these cases.”
