Gibson Co. Mayor has truck stolen from home
GIBSON COUNTY, Tenn.-The mayor of Gibson County found himself the victim of a crime earlier this week. Mayor Tom Witherspoon said his white 1999 Chevy S-10 was stolen from his home in Bradford, Sunday. But thanks to the Gibson and Crockett County Sheriff’s Department, it was returned to the mayor Wednesday night. “Don’t leave your keys in your vehicle and make it as easy as I made it for them to get it. I never would have thought in a million years someone would consider stealing that old truck but I sure did make it easy for them and I’ve learned my lesson from it,” said Mayor Witherspoon. Deputies said they are still investigating who stole the truck, but Mayor Witherspoon said he is just happy he has it back.
