A 34-year-old High Ridge man and a 25-year-old Valley Park woman have been arrested in connection with the theft of two vehicles from ZHL Motors, 4598 Main St., in House Springs. One of the vehicles was found, although it had been damaged in a wreck, the Jefferson County Sheriff’s Office reported.
The thefts were reported about 1:10 a.m. Oct. 21, after the business owner arrived at the auto dealership and found the right-side window of the building was broken and the two vehicles missing – a 2004 Chevrolet Colorado pickup and a 2008 Chevrolet Malibu, together valued at $10,370. In addition, keys to nine vehicles and three dealer plates were stolen, the report said.
Sheriff’s Office spokesman Grant Bissell said the Malibu was recovered by St. Louis County Police on Oct. 23 after it was found “wrecked” in Valley Park. St. Louis County Police arrested the two suspects, he said.
