Repossessed SUV found abandoned in Rapid Creek

RAPID CITY, S.D. – Monday morning, an SUV was pulled out of Rapid Creek behind the Central States Fairgrounds.

Rapid City police received a call just after 8:30 a.m. from a woman who reported hearing the vehicle’s window being smashed. She reportedly saw a man break the back window with a rock.

Police are not sure who that man was or how long the vehicle had been in the creek.

Officers later found that the original plates had been taken off the car, but paper ones were left inside. When they called the dealership listed on those plates, police were told that the vehicle was being repossessed.

The name of the vehicle’s owner has not been released at this time.
