ORIGINAL STORY

HARTFORD, Ky. (2/22/16) — The Ohio County Sheriff's Office is looking for a truck believed to have been stolen by an escaped convict from the Western Kentucky Correctional Complex in Eddyville.

According to the OCSO, deputies are looking for a maroon 1997 Ford F150 extended cab with a Kentucky license plate of 8472CG. There was a load of wood chips in the back of the truck at the time it was taken.

The truck was allegedly stolen by Lostia M. Shreves, of Cecilia, an escapee from the WKCC. Shreves was discovered missing after a head count around 9 p.m. Wednesday, Feb. 17. She was serving time for a probation violation on a felony offense.

Around 9:15 p.m. last Wednesday night, the Kentucky State Police received a report of a stolen vehicle from a residence near the WKCC in Eddyville. 

It's believed the escapee made her way to Ohio County, abandoned the stolen truck and stole an Ohio County truck. The truck stolen from Ohio County has since been recovered. It was found abandoned in Hardin County.
