Time Has Run Out On Stolen Cars In East Texas Query

Time has run out on some stolen cars found in a Cherokee County clay pit. Last month, the DPS Dive Recovery Team pulled two trucks out of the water. The East Texas Auto Task Force later discovered both trucks were reported stolen by the same owner. However, because the Statute of Limitations of five years has passed, the task force can no longer investigate. Officials say they think they got all the cars out of the clay pit and are not planning to search for more.
