UPDATE: Truck Stolen from Merrill Located in Shawano County

More Video...

Three teens are in custody in Lincoln County in connection into several early morning theft cases, including a stolen vehicle.

Amy Laffin tells NewsChannel 7, around 5:30 a.m. Friday morning her brother noticed his truck missing from their driveway. Laffin contacted police, and later learned that they weren't the only victims. In fact, other people living East Main Street in Merrill had discovered missing items too. Fortunately, some were pretty minor like missing change.

At this time Police are not commenting on the case, but are expected to release more details at a later date.

Laffin says police notified her later in the morning that the truck had been found three counties away in Shawano County. She says they're hoping to have the truck returned later Friday.

She says her brother works third shift and didn't return home until after 1 a.m. He says just a few hours later the truck was taken.

If you have information, or saw anything suspicious contact the Merrill Police Department at (715) 536-8311.
