Sheffield theft investigation continues after burned remains are found

SHEFFIELD, Ala. – Police are investigating the case of a stolen truck taken this past weekend. Although the truck has been sort of recovered in an adjoining county, they still need to know who did it. Sunday morning, just after 2, surveillance cameras at a Muscle Shoals convenience store captured a stolen truck driving by. According to Sheffield police, the truck was taken from a York Terrace home just a few minutes earlier.

Detectives say the 2011 Chevrolet Silverado was located days later in the Red Bank community of Lawrence County. The truck had been stripped of everything that could be sold for cash, and then to add insult to injury, the thief tried to set the truck on fire.
