Theft

   * EPD Sgt. Roger Crowe was traveling east on East Elk Avenue around 2 a.m. Wednesday when he observed a green Neon in the roadway on Watauga near Grindstaff's Used Cars. All doors on the vehicle were locked. The officer observed that it looked like the vehicle had been pushed across the street with another vehicle. Earl Grindstaff of Grindstaff Used Cars was notified and came to the scene. Grindstaff said a red 1988 Chevrolet pickup was missing. The truck had been parked directly behind the Neon and, according to the report, it appeared that the Neon was pushed out of the way by the truck. The vehicle is described as a short, wide bed, Model-GKI, with a gold stripe about 12 inches wide all around the vehicle near the bottom. The truck has a black grill, two chrome bumpers and two chrome hold bars on the sides of the cab, and 4X4 signs on the bed.
