Sunken car in Laguna Lake had been stolen
July 29, 2014
The Subaru station wagon found in Laguna Lake on Sunday had been missing since 2006 and was previously stolen, according to the San Luis Obispo Police Department.
Police officials said that the station wagon had been reported stolen in Pismo Beach in 1996. But, records indicated that the vehicle did not go missing until 10 years later.
Investigators still do not know how long the car was submerged, but they believe it had been in the lake for a long time. Officers did not identify any evidence inside the vehicle, although the keys remained in the ignition.
San Luis Obispo police have located the owner of the Subaru. The individual is no longer a resident of San Luis Obispo County.
