Marquette, MI – October 22, 2020 – Marquette County Sheriff Greg Zyburt joined Mark & Walt in the Morning today to talk about the theft of the marked Chevy Silverado pickup truck he was driving yesterday when he came in to do an interview on the show.
Zyburt joined Mark & Walt today during the “Dumb Criminal Files” to share more about the story. He said he thought he locked the vehicle when he came in to do the interview. But, when he came out of the interview, the pickup was gone. It had been stolen from the station parking lot in Marquette Township.
Zyburt says he thought Deputies were playing a practical joke on him, but the vehicle was soon found in a ditch nearby on Forestville Road and the new Sheriff’s Office K-9, Deja, was brought in. He says the dog quickly tracked the suspect to the Forestville boat launch and the unidentified man was taken into custody.
Zyburt reminded everyone to lock their vehicles, saying if it can happen to the Sheriff, it can happen to you!
