Stolen vehicle found abandoned in McCullough Peaks

A Chevy Cavalier, reportedly stolen from Cody last week, was found Sunday evening, abandoned in the McCullough Peaks south of Powell.

On Sunday evening, a group of Powell residents found the vehicle while riding all-terrain vehicles in the peaks area. The group found it about a mile south of the end of Road 8.

They reported the discovery to the Park County Sheriff's Office and, because they had the foresight to take photos and get the vehicle's identification number, authorities were able to confirm it as the stolen Cavalier.

Jacobs led a deputy out to the remote location Monday morning, where the vehicle was impounded and taken to Cody to be processed for evidence.

The Cody Police Department is handling the investigation into the theft, the sheriff's office said.
