• The district manager of a lumber company discovered one of his company’s vehicles that had been stolen Sunday parked in the north-bound rest area on Interstate 45. The man told officers that he was traveling north and saw the truck parked in the rest area loaded with pallets and shingles. He knew the trucks weren’t supposed to be out Sunday, so he called police. Officers discovered that the steering column had been broken, and another driver said the truck had been there at least six hours.
