Vehicle Theft Victim Spots His Property While Flying Over Grand Coulee

Posted: Updated:

PRESS RELEASE FROM THE GRANT COUNTY SHERIFF'S OFFICE: GRAND COULEE, Wash. (18JULY2013) - A Quincy-area farmer alerted deputies to the location of his stolen vehicles after he spotted them while flying his private plane.

Kevin Weber of Weber Farms reported his 1997 Peterbilt dump truck and Beall pup trailer missing Thursday morning after they were taken from his farm overnight. The Grant County Sheriff's Office on Thursday publicized Weber's offer of a $2500 reward for information on the stolen vehicles and the person responsible for the theft.

This morning, Weber piloted his private plane in search of the vehicles. He spotted them in a rural area in Lincoln County near Grand Coulee and called Lincoln County Sheriff's Deputies.

Lincoln county deputies, assisted by Grant County deputies, found the stolen dump truck and pup trailer, and also found a utility trailer stolen from Weber Farms. Deputies suspect the owner of the property where the vehicles were found was attempting to dismantle and obscure the stolen property from view.

Kevin Heeb, 30 of Grand Coulee, is lodged in the Lincoln County Jail in Davenport on charges associated with the theft of the vehicles.

The investigation continues.
