A plastic-wrapped SUV found buried in an Oklahoma family’s back yard could be evidence of insurance fraud by the previous property owners, police said.
Fredie Green said the 2003 Chevy Trailblazer was found buried in the middle of a trail he and his family used for riding ATVs and motocross bikes behind their home on Bethel Rd.
Green’s son, Cody, said he discovered the subterranean vehicle while digging to adjust the jump on the trail.
Green said he called the authorities and said, “just make sure that there were no dead bodies in the car.”
Pottawatomie County sheriff’s deputies responded to the scene and finished digging up the SUV, which was wrapped in plastic. They dragged the vehicle out of the hole and tore off the doors, discovering to Green’s relief that there were no bodies inside.
Sheriff’s Lt. Robert Stewart said the Trailblazer had been reported stolen 10 years earlier by the property’s previous owner
