0918truck1
Lt. Brad Rounds of the Hall County Sheriff's Office watches as a Ford truck is slowly pulled from the water Wednesday afternoon at Little River Park.

A truck submerged in Lake Lanier at Little River Park was determined Wednesday to be stolen from Gwinnett County, said Hall County Sheriff’s Office spokeswoman Deputy Nicole Bailes.

A diver with the sheriff’s office’s underwater search and rescue unit inspected the truck around 3 p.m. to confirm there were no victims inside the vehicle.

The Army Corps of Engineers assisted the sheriff’s office with locating the vehicle.

“The case will be turned over to property investigators,” Bailes said.
