OPD recovers stolen vehicle
A tip to Orange police led to the discovery of a stolen vehicle from Louisiana. Officer James Gillen, with the Orange Police Dept., was patrolling in the Brownwood area, and upon entering the 2300 block of Riverside Dr., he observed a red Chevrolet truck.
The truck, which had been reported stolen from Lake Charles, was spotted unattended in a driveway. A registration check showed the vehicle to be the stolen truck.
Upon receiving NCIC confirmation, Officer Gillen contacted Gilbeaux’s Towing to remove the vehicle from the property. Calcasieu Parish Sheriff’s Office was contacted and notified of the recovery.
