Fisherman with depth finder locates stolen truck

By Bonnie Culverhouse

A fisherman at Sikes Ferry received a surprise Thursday morning when his depth finder located more than fish.

Webster Parish Sheriff Jason Parker said a pick-up truck stolen in 2019 showed on the unidentified man’s equipment while he was trying to find white perch.

“The truck was about 75 yards from the launch area,” Parker said. “We got the Minden Fire Department dive team out here, and they were very helpful with the investigation.”

Fortunately, there was no one found in or around the vehicle.

“Evidently this is not an uncommon place for people to ditch stolen stuff,” he said. “They’ve recovered four-wheelers out here.”

The investigation is ongoing.
