CENTRE, Ala. (AP) — A man just looking for some fish instead found four stolen cars at the bottom of a lake.

Cherokee County Sheriff Jeff Shaver says the vehicles were removed from Weiss Lake on Monday after the fisherman spotted something odd on his boat’s sonar.

A closer look revealed the bed of a pickup truck.

Shaver says the vehicles were stolen in 2012 and 2013. The investigation is ongoing.
