---- — WHITE PIGEON, Mich. (AP) — Authorities say a pickup truck with four flat tires that hadn't run for five or six years was reportedly targeted by thieves in southwestern Michigan.

MLive.com reports Monday that the truck was taken during the last two to four weeks in White Pigeon, about 80 miles south of Grand Rapids.

The St. Joseph County sheriff's department says the red, 2000 Dodge had a 100-gallon aluminum fuel tank in its bed along with an aluminum toolbox.

A witness reported seeing a flat-bed wrecker take the pickup truck as a second tow truck followed behind.
