A South Dakota Highway Patrol trooper responded to a report of a vehicle on its side Tuesday in the James River north of Forestburg. When a Trooper arrived he could not tell if anyone was in the vehicle, so he entered the water and broke out the windows to see if it was occupied. No one was in the vehicle on in the water around it. It was later discovered that the vehicle was stolen. (Photo courtesy of the South Dakota Highway Patrol)
