A helicopter and ground search for a stolen vehicle suspect in the Alta Sierra Area has been underway. The gray Dodge Ram pickup that was stolen was found wrecked on Auburn Rd. at Kiwi shortly before 8:30 this morning. The driver of the vehicle bailed out and ran before the CHP had a chance to question him. KNCO’s Gary Jacobson has been on scene all morning and says they believe the suspect obtained the keys to the pick up during a home burglary.
