An attempted vehicle theft leads to a severed finger. 22-year-old Angel Orozco-Vargas of Oroville reportedly told hospital staff at Enloe that he severed his finger while trying to break into a vehicle at 5th and Ivy streets before 11 pm Wednesday night. Officers arrived to the area to find the suspect's finger along with a knife he allegedly used to try to break into the vehicle. Officers learned that the suspect was also connected to an alleged stolen vehicle that was recovered earlier that morning.
Police say that Orozco-Vargas is still being treated due to the severity of his injury.
