Roanoke, LA (KPLC) - A woman is credited with using a tracking app on her cell phone to help authorities locate a stolen vehicle, according to the Jefferson Davis Sheriff’s Office.

Chief Deputy Christopher Ivey says, deputies were dispatched to the area around Welsh Roanoke Junior High School around 6:30 a.m. on Sunday, May 28, after they received a report of a stolen vehicle.

The woman that called the sheriff’s office had been able to track her cell phone, which was still in the vehicle, which led deputies to a trailer in Perry’s Trailer Park on South Lake Arthur Ave. in Jennings.
