The four vehicles were reported stolen Thursday, according to a news release from the Rock County Sheriff's Office. The first vehicle was stolen in the 1200 block of West Bullard Road in the Town of Porter. The vehicle was tracked by GPS and when deputies tried to stop the stolen vehicle it fled at a high rate of speed. The vehicle was found abandoned on South Dickey Road in the Town of Spring Valley.

A second vehicle was stolen from the 5600 block of North Tuttle Road and a third vehicle was taken from the 10000 block of West Wheeler Road. A fourth vehicle was taken from the 7000 block of North Eagle Road. All vehicle thefts occurred either on Wednesday or Thursday.

On Sunday, one of the vehicles was found in a cornfield off of North Wilder Road in the Town of Porter. The remaining two stolen vehicles were found in a field off of Casey Road in the Town of Porter.

The sheriff's office encourages everyone to lock their vehicles and remove valuables, as all four vehicles were unlocked and ignition keys were readily available.
