Dawson County sheriffs deputies are on the look out for a man wanted for stealing a car.

On April 4 around 1:30 p.m., officers received a report of a car stolen from Disharoon Automotive, according to Dawson County Sheriffs Office Public Information Officer Tony Wooten.

An employee told deputies they saw someone they didnt recognize get into a two-tone gold Lexus and take off.

The car was recovered at a crash scene but the alleged thief is still on the loose. The car had crashed at Highway 9 and Martin Road shortly after 2 p.m., Wooten said. The officers found the vehicle overturned and down an embankment.

Wooten said officers searched the area but were not able to find the suspect.

Disharoon employees described the suspect as a white male wearing a T-shirt and having a goatee.

Wooten said the man in question must have either been dropped off or arrived on foot to Disharoon because there was no evidence of a car left behind.

Work was being done on the Lexus for a customer, Wooten said. The key was in the ignition at the time the car was stolen.
