Fire Department Dive Team finds car in playa lake during training

LUBBOCK, TX (KCBD) - What started as a training exercise for the Lubbock Fire Department Dive Team on Wednesday morning, ended with an open case for Lubbock Police. One the divers got into the playa lake near I-27 and the South Loop, it only took them minutes to find a sunken car.

Lubbock Police got called to the scene. The 1994 rusted Suzuki Swift was pulled out of the water around 10:45 a.m. "On top of training, it feels like we are actually finding something and the police department is thankful, and its nice for us to work together, said Lt. Mike McGinnis, Lubbock Fire Department Station 14 Dive Team.

Officers on the scene say the tags came back to a registered owner that did not appear to match the car. Police are trying to track down how the car ended up in the lake.
