WATERLOO, Ala. – In Lauderdale County, a personal vehicle was stolen from a school campus this past weekend. Investigators with the sheriff’s office are releasing surveillance pictures of the incident hoping to capture the culprits.

On Sunday, February 3, at around 2:20 a.m., a crime went down at Waterloo High School. The Lauderdale County Sheriff’s Office released surveillance pictures and video.

Investigators say a dark-colored truck, possibly a newer model Ford F-150, hooked a tow line to a Chevrolet truck and pulled it away. Before it was taken, the assailants broke the driver's side window out.
