A bronze-colored Chevrolet Camaro SS that was reported stolen last week was located in a field south of Brookville Friday morning.

Saline County Sheriff's deputies were sent to a field near the intersection of Crittendon Road and West Farrelly Road at approximately 9 a.m. Friday for the report of an abandoned vehicle, Saline County Sheriff Roger Soldan said this morning.

A deer hunter discovered the car and told deputies that the car had not been there the night before, Soldan said.

The car, valued at $30,000, was reported stolen from a warehouse in the 400 block of North Fifth Street in Salina sometime between Sept. 26-28, according to a report from Crimestoppers of Salina/Saline County.

Soldan said the car was returned to its owner, who had to tow it back to Salina. The owner said he suspected the car had engine damage because of the large amount of oil on the roadway and on the car, Soldan added.
