Vicksburg Police Department and the Warren County Sheriff’s Office are hunting for an armed suspect after a report of a vehicle theft.

Just before 11 a.m. a woman reported her truck stolen after stopping for directions on South Frontage Road. After pulling up for directions, the victim stated she was pulled out of her vehicle by a man who then drove away with it.

She then ran to the Speedee Cash after the incident to report what had happened.

Onstar was able to ping the truck, a white Chevy 2500 with an orange tool box, which has been recovered.
