Police are investigating a stolen truck that was found burning in the desert near St. George Monday morning.
Authorities received reports of a vehicle fire on the unpaved portion of Navajo Drive around 6:45 a.m., St. George Police officer Tiffany Atkin said.
Washington County Sheriff’s deputies, St. George Police and the St. George Fire Department responded to find a 2006 Lincoln Mark LT that had been completely burned.
“The vehicle was well involved in fire when we received the dispatch,” Fire Chief Robert Stoker said. Police determined the truck belonged to a man living in St. George, who was unaware that the vehicle was missing. They determined it had been stolen from the driveway of the residence some time Sunday night.
