Friday, November 4, 2011

Columbia, SC (WLTX) -- Investigators are searching for a two-tone pickup truck they say may be driven by someone they think may know more about burned cross left in a yard of a Gervais Street home.

According to FBI agents, a burning cross was left in the yard of 45-year-old Mitchell Smith at about 4:15 a.m. on Oct. 21

Smith was previously charged with unauthorized practice as a social worker on Oct. 17.

On Monday, Smith was charged with neglect of a vulnerable adult and simple possession of marijuana. Related Coverage: Man Accused of Posing as Social Worker Faces New Charges

Investigators believe that the driver of the truck, which is said to be burgundy and silver, may know more about the crime. Officials say the model year of the truck could be from 1988 to 1998, and investigators say they could see a chrome toolbox in the bed of the truck.

If you can help officials find the truck, you are urged to call CrimeStoppers of the Midlands at 1-888-CRIME-SC or text a tip to "CRIMES" beginning with the term "TIPSC."
