Shawnee County Sheriffs were called on a report of a stolen pickup truck. Fifteen minutes later the Topeka Police were called on a injury accident with a truck in a pond.
People fishing at the time reported seeing a pickup driving over the curb and then running away as the truck drove into the pond.
Police arrived to see the truck before it sank to the roof top. They could see that no one was in the truck and so did not go in the pond to rescue.
Mission Township Fire Departments dive team checked out the submerged truck and also found it empty. The truck was then towed out and confirmed to be the truck that was reported stolen.
