Atchison police and Brown County authorities have joined forces to determine who is responsible for a bringing a stolen truck from across the county line before abandoning it within Atchison city limits.

It was about 7:20 p.m. Saturday, Feb. 22, when Atchison police answered a call that concerned some suspicious activity concerning a 2019 Ford pickup in the 900 block of Laramie Street, Chief of Police Mike Wilson said. An investigation ensued, and police determined that within the hour before they recovered the pickup it had been reported stolen to Brown County authorities from a rural area within that jurisdiction.

Atchison police investigated the matter with Brown County authorities, before the arrest a Brown County juvenile male subject in the case, who has not been identified. APD has since returned the truck to its rightful owner.
