NATCHEZ — During their weekend patrol, Adams County Sheriff’s deputies discovered a van and four-wheeler that were both reported stolen on separate occasions.

The four-wheeler was reportedly spotted by deputies with two males riding on it in the Morgantown Road area on Second Street last Friday.

When deputies attempted to approach the two, they both fled on foot and left the four-wheeler behind a house on Brooklyn Drive. When deputies located the four-wheeler, a blue Honda Rubicon, they noticed no key was used and they ran the VIN number to learn it had been reported stolen from a Wilkerson Road residence on June 23.

It matched the description of the van that the Natchez Police Department reported stolen on July 14. Deputies ran the license plate and the VIN number to confirm it was the same vehicle and contacted the Natchez Police Department.

The vehicle has been turned over to their Criminal Investigation Division.
