Thursday afternoon, a fisherman on the Satilla River near Highway 64 in Atkinson County found a truck submerged in the river. He called Atkinson County 911, which sent officers from the Atkinson County Sheriff’s Office and the Georgia Department of Natural Resources to the scene. They also called in the Coffee County dive team to assist.

Dive team members went in the river and secured a chain to the truck. A wrecker pulled the truck from the river, and officers discovered that the truck had been reported to the Atkinson County Sheriff’s Office as stolen a month ago.

The investigation is ongoing.
