St. Petersburg Police Investigate Car in Sheffield Lake

At about 10:30 a.m., St. Petersburg Police officers were called to Sheffield Lake, on 49th Street N. near 24th Avenue N., for suspicious circumstances. Tire tracks and a knocked down sign led officers to believe a vehicle had gone into the water. Firefighters were able to locate the vehicle by looking down from a ladder truck. A wrecker later arrived to remove it from the water. The owner of the vehicle was located and he admitted to crashing into the lake early in the morning. He was not hurt and was able to get out safely. He neglected to report the incident to police. Police believe there was not anyone else in the car with him at the time. Charges are pending.
