SALINE COUNTY— Law enforcement authorities are investigating a suspect in connection with a stolen truck.
Just after 5p.m. Wednesday, deputies were dispatched to report of a suspicious vehicle in the 100 Block of South Main in the unincorporated community of Bridgeport, according to Saline County Sheriff Roger Soldan.
The 2004 Chevy Silverado had been parked at that location for several days. It was reported stolen from Beloit on November 29. Further investigation led deputies to a Salina motel where they arrested 44-year-old Jay A. Mott.
Deputies booked him into the Saline County Jail for alleged possession of stolen property.
Mott has a previous conviction for theft from Pottawatomie County, according to the Kansas Department of Corrections.
