One jailed after stolen Corvette found in supposedly empty car trailer

WICHITA FALLS (KFDX/KJTL) — An alleged car thief with a stolen Corvette in a trailer eluded converging law officers from several agencies for many miles but in the end, couldn’t escape technology.

Local agencies were notified on Wednesday afternoon, June 12, to be on the lookout for a 2016 black and white Corvette stolen in Dallas.

The owner of the Corvette was receiving locations with a tracking device and giving information to Texas DPS dispatch as the car passed through different counties.

But each time officers reached the area looking for a black and white Corvette, they came up empty.


Man whose “she fell off truck” story rejected rearrested

As it neared Wichita Falls on U.S. 287, Clay County Deputies waited for it but never saw it.

The owner then reported it was in Wichita County, and again deputies set up on the highway but failed to spot it.

Next, the owner reported the tracking device was on Old Iowa Park Road near the QuikTrip store and had stopped moving.

Deputies searched around the store and in the rear of the parking lot behind a semi-trailer saw a man working on a rear tire of a pickup with an attached enclosed trailer.

The man reportedly told them there was nothing in the trailer, but the door was open. A deputy looked in and saw a black and white Corvette.

The suspect told deputies he was a self-employed vehicle transporter headed for Amarillo, but he did not know who he was delivering the car to or the name of the person he took possession of the car from in Dallas.

He also said he did not know the car was reported stolen.

The driver, identified as Jerreh Korrah of Washington, was arrested and charged with felony theft.
