Cheyenne Allen

Knox City Police Department officers recovered a vehicle, Tuesday, that had been reported stolen from the Cambe dealership in Knox.

The vehicle, a red 2010 Chevy Silverado, was reported stolen November 18th, 2010. It was parked in the south lot of the business and it was last seen on the property on November 17th. The truck was found to be in the possession of Cheyenne Allen, 34, at his Winamac residence. When asked about the truck, Allen said he allegedly purchased it from two subjects. He said he never got the title to the vehicle and suspected it to be stolen, but never reported it to police. He said he paid $3,500 and exchanged an older Dodge truck for the new vehicle. He had also reportedly purchased a trailer from the pair and found it to be stolen. The owner had confronted him and it was returned to the owner.

Allen was arrested and taken to the Starke County Jail. He has been charged with Auto Theft.
