Vermillion police ask for help in finding car thief
The Vermillion Police Department is asking for the public's help in finding the suspected driver of a stolen vehicle that crashed into a building.
Michael Alford is wanted for stealing a vehicle—now recovered—out of Rapid City. According to Vermillion police, early Thursday morning Alford crashed the car into a building when he tried eluding officers near the 800-block of East Cherry Street, near Taco Johns.
Alford has a criminal history and was recently released from prison. The Vermillion Police Department said while it has no specific information that Alford is a threat to the public, residents should use caution by locking their doors and removing the keys from their vehicles.
People are urged to call police immediately if Alford is seen or they have made contact with him.
