RENSSELAER – A man has been jailed after allegedly stealing a red Chevrolet S10 last weekend.

It happened Saturday evening 12 miles NE of town when Jasper County Sheriff’s Office were notified of a possible burglary in progress. Deputies enroute to the scene noticed two pickups leaving the area, one a small red Chevy S-10.

It was later confirmed after arrival that truck had been stolen.

“Deputies followed the tire tracks of the two vehicles, in the fresh fallen snow, to a residence located a few miles away. Deputies approached the residence and located the red Chevrolet S10 which was unoccupied, and three individuals seated in the other pickup truck.” Jasper County Sheriff’s Office said in a press release Thursday.

Officers reportedly found the ignition of the S-10 had been punched and discovered a broken punch in the pocket of one of the men. Deputies arrested Garrett Mayhew, 26 of Lowell, on one Felony charge of Auto Theft and two misdemeanors, including a False Identity Statement and Unauthorized Entry of a Motor Vehicle.
