080420 CRATER LAKE STOLEN VEHICLE RECOVERY Recovery description:
Last week Montgomery County Auto Theft Task Force had information of a vehicle in Crater Lake in the oil fields off FM 3083. After deploying side-scan sonar they discovered an unknown vehicle in 30-feet of water. This morning Detectives with the Auto Theft Task Force along with divers from the Montgomery County Precinct 1 Marine Division and Caney Creek Fire Department went back to the location to recover the vehicle. Divers were put into the black water and were tasked with connecting a cable from a Texas Towing and Recovery wrecker to the vehicle. After about an hour the vehicle was pinpointed and cables were connected. Slowly the silver 2013 Dodge Dart came to the surface and was removed. This has not been the first vehicle recovered from the lake over the years which has also yielded several bodies since the lake was created in the 1930s. Once divers were out of the water the had to be decontaminated and scrubbed down. Additional details later today.
