Deputies were called to the boat ramp off of Hatchery Road in Elkmont to pull out a sunken car Tuesday afternoon.
According to deputies, a fisherman called in just before 1:00pm Tuesday to report a car was submerged in Elk River. Deputies with the Limestone County Sheriff’s Office, as well as a diver from the Rogersville Fire Department responded to see if anyone was inside the car. There were no occupants, but deputies say the car was stolen from a home invasion that happened in Florence Tuesday morning.
The investigation is being handled by the Lauderdale County Sheriff's Office.
