Stolen Church Van Crashes into Weigel's

Sunday, 07 May 2017

A van stolen from the Korean Church of Knoxville crashed into a Weigel’s at 9710 Westland Drive early Sunday morning.  Officers responded shortly before 2 a.m. to a burglary in progress at the store.  An officer saw glass in the roadway getting on Pellissippi Parkway toward Northshore Drive.  While checking businesses in that area, he found the vehicle, a 2006 Ford E350 van, abandoned in the roadway just off Town Center Boulevard.  The vehicle was damaged on the back.  The driver side door lock had been pried out and the ignition tampered with in order to start the van.  It doesn’t appear anything was taken from the store, however there was significant damage to the front of the store. The incident is under investigation
