The Olympian

Lacey Fire District 3’s Swift Water Team investigated a fully submerged truck Friday afternoon in the Nisqually River.

The fire department received a call from staff at Wa He Lut Indian School about a vehicle — a red 2013 Dodge Ram — in the river behind the school at 111110 Conine Ave. S.E.

The department reported that Swift Water members found no signs of any  occupants in the vehicle at the scene.

“We were able to probe around inside the vehicle,” said Steve Crimmins, battalion chief, adding that a tow truck pulled the vehicle out of the water. “We’re pretty confident there was no one inside the vehicle.”

The Thurston County Sheriff’s Office confirmed that the vehicle was stolen from Steilacoom on New Year’s Eve.
