Residents may have seen a truck being removed from the North Ski Area last Friday, April 17, and wondered what had happened. This is the story behind the truck in the lake:
On Monday, April 6, a fisherman spotted a vehicle mostly under water in the North Ski Area, on the east side, past the boat staging area.
According to Special Enforcement Officer Ivan Henery, the silver truck had been pushed into the lake and abandoned. It was later learned that it had been reported as stolen.
On Friday, April 10, divers from Riverside County Sheriff’s Department were able to place airbags beneath the vehicle and “float” it to the launch ramp on the North Causeway where they were then able to remove it from the lake.
