Authorities said a white Chevrolet 2500 work truck and translift were taken from Horton Homes in Little River. Officers were called to the incident at 116 U.S. 17. A man at the scene told police a company truck, trailer and lift machine were taken the night before.
Police reviewed security camera footage and said they saw a Chevrolet Silverado with step rails and knobby tires bust through the cable barrier about 1:35 a.m. and then left. Police said the truck came back about 2 a.m., went to the back of the property, and parked near the stolen truck, according to a report.
The man reporting the incident said the stolen truck’s keys were missing from a hiding spot. Cameras show suspects getting into the truck and leaving with the other stolen items, the report states.
The victim told police the truck was almost out of gas when it was taken, so the suspects would have likely stopped to fill it up after taking it.
