On Thursday, June 27th, 2019, a Shiloh Police Officer was on patrol when he observed a vehicle traveling at a slow rate of speed northbound on North Green Mount Road. Upon running a computer check of the registration number, the Officer observed the registration to be stolen out of Tennessee. A traffic stop was conducted on the vehicle. The Officer then ran the VIN of the vehicle through dispatch and it was determined the vehicle was stolen out of Florida. The occupants were taken into custody without incident.
