Stolen Truck

This may be a long shot, but its worth a try. This truck was stolen in Merrifield, VA sometime in the past week. I just reported it stolen today, and it could be anywhere. If you have seen it in the past week or know anyone that has, let me know. If you see the truck driving around now, call the police.

Even if they spray-paint the logo and number out, the orange box sticks out like a sore thumb.

That is a bold truck to steal, pretty easy to spot unless they change out alot of parts.

With the 100 degree weather last week, we didnt cut any lawns. The truck was parked on a commercial street and I didn't drive by where it was parked until recently.

It was about as full as you could ever want a mowing rig to be.

1 Turf Tracer 52" with Operator controlled discharge (1 year old)
1 Viking 36" hydro with Grass gobbler (1 month old)
1 Bobcat 48" fixed deck belt drive
3 Velkes
2 FS90 line trimmers
1 FS110 line trimmer (1month old)
1 FS110 blade edger
2 BR600 blowers
1 FS130R Brush cutter
1 HS45 Hedge trimmer
1 Toro 21" commercial push mower
1 Optimax 9HP blower
1 Ryan Lawnaire IV plus aerator
1 Husky 252pc toolkit
....and a small sprayer, a few shovels, rakes, etc.

I pulled out the pole pruner saw and the two newer blowers a few days before to do a cleanup job and still have them. The only Stihl equipment I have left are 2 Br600 blowers, 1 pole pruner and 1 chainsaw.

Yeah I'm thinking the same thing(at least I would get the truck back), but that is the best case scenario. The truck only had 55k miles on a diesel motor and I put all new tires on the truck a few months ago for $1200. They will probably take out the motor, trans, and the rims/tires also.

Not likely, thats pretty time consuming, its easy to pull all the equipment out of it and ditch the truck somewhere, not too easy to strip it down and get rid of the shell of the truck after words.

Yeah it probably will turn up empty somewhere. The equipment is worth more than the truck anyways.

Here's some more pics(I still have the spreader)...
