Posted: Updated:

A DeKalb County police officer was released from the hospital after he was hit by a minivan early Monday morning.

DeKalb County police set up a sting to catch crooks breaking into 18-wheelers on International Park Drive SE.

"They are stealing tires, they are stealing microwaves, whatever property that's inside of the trailers they are breaking into the trailers and stealing those items," said Lt. Dane Cunningham.

The officer was hurt when he was struck in the hip as he tried to stop a minivan.

The officer was taken to DeKalb Medical Center with minor injuries.

Police are still looking for the driver of the minivan.
