Des Moines police say someone stole an SUV early Tuesday morning, and ditched it in a south side pond.

Around 5:00 a.m. police got a call about an SUV found in the water at MacRae Park on Southwest 9th.

When officers got there, they found a Jeep with both doors open, the lights on and the windshield wipers running, but there was no sign of the driver.

Police say they went to the registered owner’s house, who said it should have been in their driveway.

If you have any information on who may have taken it, you’re asked to call police.
