Battery Thieves Fail to Keep Going, and Going, and Going

A certain type of batteries is known to keep going, and going and going Apparently those werent the type of power sources stolen recently in rural Scotland County.

Two men are in custody of the Scotland County Sheriffs Department after they attempted to steal several batteries from a home located on Highway 136 near the Clark County line. But the getaway car wasnt able to keep going and going. The Lee County Iowa Sheriffs Department recovered the car stuck in a ditch after running off an icy road.

The property owner reported the theft in progress, allowing the Scotland County Sheriffs Department to quickly respond to the scene. Scanner traffic made area residences aware of the description of the vehicle, resulting in numerous phone tips from callers reporting seeing the vehicle heading through rural northwest Clark County before it entered Iowa.
