DOWNING – Late Saturday evening (Nov. 30) a van was seen sitting in the driveway of a home on County Road W just outside of Downing. The couple did not recognize the vehicle in their driveway, but assumed it was a friends or family members.
Upon noticing the vehicle, the couple went into the house to look for a note, but found nothing so they became suspicious and went to further look at the van that had been parked near their shed, but it was gone.
It was stated that the vehicle is an older model red/maroon mini van and the person(s) involved left behind a green Carhartt stocking hat.
The St. Croix County Sheriff’s Department was called to the scene but it appeared no items were stolen from either the house or the shed so the incident is being called a “suspicious vehicle complaint”.
