Two Columbus residents were arrested Thursday morning after police say they were found with a stolen vehicle.
Judy Jackson, Bartholomew County Sheriff’s Department spokeswoman, says that at about 7:37 a.m., Deputy Lt. Todd Noblitt responded to a suspicious vehicle call at an abandoned residence in the 3600 block of West Deaver Road. When he arrived, Lt. Noblitt reported seeing a vehicle in the driveway with 19-year-old Shayla Ulrey in the driver’s seat. Another vehicle was also sitting in the yard, as was as a large yellow box truck. Jackson says that 22-year-old Ethan Spray was standing in front of the box truck that was clearly marked as belonging to a logging company. She says that deputies were able to determine that the truck was stolen after reaching representatives with the logging company.
Jackson says that Spray and Ulrey were arrested on preliminary charges of Theft and Receiving Stolen Property. The pair were being held without bond.
