Three cars stolen in Durant, all thefts believed to be connected

Posted:

Durant police reported Monday that three cars were reported stolen over the weekend. On New Year's Day, a 1994 Honda Civic was taken from a business on South 9th street. Several firearms, a flat screen TV, CDs, amps and speakers, and a GPS were also taken from the business. 

Saturday, another vehicle was reported stolen from the same business, a white 2006 Nissan Altima. The first theft, it appears that entry was made from the rear of the business through an unsecured window.  The second theft, a window was broken and entry was made that way. Durant police believe the theft was committed by a current or former employee based upon the familiarity with the business. Police are following up with several suspects.

Shortly after the second theft was reported, officers received a call of a burned vehicle on the far west side of the Bryan County Fairgrounds. The vehicle was badly burned but the tag number and what was left matched the 1994 Honda Civic. During this investigation, it was discovered that a 1998 Chevy 2500 pickup had been taken from the Bryan County Commissioner's storage area. This vehicle was found a short time later at another business on South 9th, about a block from the business that the other two vehicles were taken.

Lt. Carrie Wyrick, with the Durant PD, said police believe the Honda was taken, driven to the fairgrounds and burned. Then the Bryan County truck was stolen and driven back to the area and parked. That's when the Nissan Altima was taken.
