ROCKLAND, Maine — A car stolen last week in Rockland was found Sunday, but it was severely vandalized.

The Kia Sephia was reported stolen in Rockland on April 6.

The license plates from the car had been found Wednesday in Waldoboro, near where a resident reported someone had stolen the license plates from her vehicle.

Waldoboro police confirmed Tuesday that the Kia had been recovered.

Marine Patrol Officer Matthew Merriman found the vehicle Sunday morning on Old County Road in Waldoboro. Merriman said Tuesday the car had its windows smashed out, tires slashed, seats slashed, dirt dumped into the fluids of the vehicle and the exterior paint had been scratched significantly.

There have been no arrests related to the thefts or vandalism.

The Kia was stolen from outside 165 Pleasant St. in Rockland sometime between 10 p.m. April 6, and 6 a.m. April 7, when the owner discovered that the vehicle was missing.

The keys were left in the vehicle.
