Lincoln County authorities have Fairbury Police Department's newest police vehicle and say they won't be giving it back soon because it's evidence.

Forty-year-old Stanly Colby, a Fairbury police officer, is accused of stealing the 2013 Ford Explorer. Colby was stopped September 14th on U.S. Highway 83 south of North Platte, about 200 miles west of Fairbury. He was still wearing his uniform.

Deputies drove him to Lincoln this week for a psychiatric evaluation to see whether he is competent to stand trial.

Chief Lincoln County Sheriff's Deputy Roland Kramer says Fairbury can't have the vehicle back until the case is closed, despite requests from Fairbury's chief.
