Steelville man charged with city, county thefts

It looks like social media helped nab a car thief in the area last week, with a post shared about a car stolen from Steelville generating responses that it had been seen in Sullivan and putting police on scene within a few minutes to recover the vehicle. The man charged with the theft has also been implicated in the theft of a City of Steelville pickup truck and a variety of other tools and miscellaneous items from the utility department.
