POTTAWATOMIE COUNTY, Kan. (WIBW) - The Pottawatomie County Sheriff's office continues to investigate three vehicle thefts from the southwest portion of the county.

In June 2012, a 2001 Dodge Dakota was stolen from Frieling Auto Sales on U.S.-24 in Manhattan. The black truck had distinct black wheels on it and off road lights on the front bumper when it was stolen. The vehicle did not have keys in it and there was no license plate on it.

On February 16, 2013, a white 2008 Chevy Impala was stolen from a private drive way in Walnut Grove Mobile Home Park in St. George, Kan. The vehicle had the license plate 692CCF. The keys were in the vehicle when it was taken.

A debit card was inside the vehicle at the time it was stolen and was used at two stores in Topeka on February 17.

A younger, light skinned black male is wanted for questioning in regard to the incident.

On February 19, a White Ford F-250 regular cab, two wheel, diesel truck was taken from a parking lot of a business near U.S.-24 and Military Trail Road, just east of Manhattan. The vehicle had a Kansas license plate of 048BCB.

The truck had a diamond plate tool box in the bed and no center caps on the wheels. It also has an F-150 tailgate.

The Pottawatomie County Sheriff's Office is also investigating a report of a theft on January 28 where at least two subjects removed the fiberglass upper doors from a 1999 Jeep Wrangler. The doors look like a canvas material but are hard plastic and have sliding hard windows.

Anyone with information on these thefts is asked to call the Pottawatomie County Sheriff's Office at 785-457-3353.
