The action started around 3:30 p.m. Friday when the Wingate Town Marshall, Bob Heisel, spotted a Jeep Cherokee that the Montgomery County Sheriff’s Department was looking for in relation to recent burglaries. A flatbed trailer that had been reported stolen last Tuesday was attached to the Jeep. Two men soon got into the vehicle and left onto a county road.
