A North Carolina fisherman was cruising on Lake Wylie outside Charlotte last month when he saw a large object on his sonar. He reported it to police. On Thursday, the York County Sheriff’s Office sent its dive team down to the vehicle, along with help from other departments. They used giant float bags to bring the car to the surface where it was towed ashore.
The car was a BMW 5-Series that was reported stolen in Charlotte in 2017. Fox News quoted a spokesman for the sheriff’s office saying it’s unusual for them to find cars “that far out in the lake.”
