Update on the stolen and stripped SUV

Stripped Dodge Durrango - Photo by Frank Nemecek
I reported last week about a severely stripped, and presumably stolen, Dodge Durrango that was found in the Warrendale neighborhood of Detroit. This vehicle was located on Kirkwood Street in between Rosemont and Penrod Streets. 

The vehicle was stripped of is engine as well as all of its doors and windows. In fact, pretty much anything else a thief could sell as parts was removed from the vehicle.

The rope that was tied to the front of its chassis would indicate that this vehicle was towed to that location. That tow-rope was then cut once they got it to its destination. All of this presumably would have been done by who ever stole it and stripped it of its parts.

I pleased to follow up with this story and say that this vehicle is no longer at that location as the photo at right clearly shows. I reported it on Monday. By the following Wednesday afternoon, it was already gone. One would presume that it was the Detroit Police Department who impounded and remove it before it could become a source of further blight in the neighborhood.

I'm happy that this problem has been solved.
