(Walhalla, SC)——————The Oconee County Sheriff’s Office has issued arrest warrants in a case involving a stolen vehicle from the Atlanta metro area located in Oconee County last Thursday.
A deputy from the Uniform Patrol Division was dispatched to a storage building unit on West-Oak Highway regarding a stolen vehicle that was taken on April 1st from USA Auto Sales in Lawrenceville, Georgia and was located in a storage unit on the property. An investigator with the Criminal Investigations Division was notified as well.
As the investigation continued, deputies were able to determine that the storage unit in question was rented to a Townville woman, Madison Brooke Hall. After obtaining a search warrant for the unit in question, a truck was located inside matching the description of the truck that was stolen. That truck, a 2005 Dodge Ram 1500 Daytona Edition, was the one found inside the storage unit. Arrangements were made last Thursday to pick up the truck and return it to the owner.
Deputies were able to make contact with Hall last Thursday at an address on Walnut Drive in Townville to speak with her about the incident. A witness stated to deputies that a white male in a black t-shirt ran out the back door of a residence while the deputies were there. The person in question, 44 year old Robert Eugene Woodward, has outstanding warrants in four states, including South Carolina, according to deputies.
Investigators obtained warrants against Hall, 18 years old, last Friday on charges of Possession of a Stolen Vehicle. Her information has been entered into the National Crime Information Center.
If you have any information on the whereabouts of Madison Brooke Hall or Robert Eugene Woodward, you are asked to call Crime Stoppers at 864-638-STOP, 1-888-CRIME-SC or text in your tip to 274637. You don’t have to give your name and if your tip leads to an arrest, you could be eligible for a cash reward.
