Photos: LPD’s Dive Team Recovers Stolen Vehicle From Lake

EXCLUSIVE PHOTOS: A stolen vehicle with its windows smashed out was found on Friday afternoon in a 6 foot deep lake. At about 5:30 PM, police received a call about a car under the water in Twin Lakes, located near Route 70 and Airport Road. Upon arrival, police determined that the vehicle was stolen.

CIU responded to the scene as well.

Following the investigation, members of the Lakewood Police Department’s Dive Team went in to the water to recover the vehicle, which was then towed by Barina. The officers included Deputy Chief Fred Capper, Captain Greg Meyer and Officer Brian Pugliese. TLS-SRC.

  1. If that lake is 6 feet deep, that car is 12 feet high (must be a Sub-A-Roo) and the LWPD Dive team is 15 ft tall. That’s a big truck! Pictures don’t lie. All kidding aside, kudos to our capable and versatile LWPD.

  2. it’s ouvious that the center of that lake is over 6 feet deep from the pictures, better safe than sorry. Nice to see officer’s coming out on their days off to help out the PD. Way to go Greg and cousin Brian.

  3. Since when does LPD have a dive team??? How come last month when the dive team was needed twice in town, TLS reported that bricktowns dive team had to be called???? What’s up….

  4. By any chance did they search the lake for the driver. Maybe they couldn’t swim and are on the bottom. But don’t worry if they are they will float up in a few days.

  5. That “lake” is a large ditch that fills up with water after a heavy rain. I know because I have ridden Quads and Dirt Bikes through it for years, as have hundreds of other riders. The dive team was not needed, just some shorts and a tow rope.
