The owner of a license plate found at Archbold’s large reservoir told Archbold police he didn’t know how the plate got there.
A worker at the Archbold water treatment plant discovered damage to the grassy area on one side of the reservoir, Friday, July 19.
A vehicle driving on the steeply sloped side of the reservoir apparently caused the damage.
A license and bracket were found. Martin Schmidt, Archbold police chief, said when officers talked to the owner of the license plate, the owner did not know how it ended up at the reservoir.
Police have marked the case closed.
