Authorities searching for work truck stolen from ETX property
Gladewater, Texas (KETK) — The Gladewater Police Department is asking for help locating a work truck taken from a local property.
Police said officers were dispatched to a property in the 400 block of Riverside Drive in reference to a report of theft on August 21. When authorities made it there, the caller, a JDW Services employee, told officers a truck and flatbed trailer hauling a John Deere backhoe had been taken.
The stolen pickup is described as a white, 2009 Chevrolet 3500 flatbed with Texas license plate number AH77635. It is believed the truck was used to take the yellow, 2013 John Deere backhoe which was already loaded on the trailer.
Later on the same date, Gladewater detectives assisted by Smith County Sheriff’s Office deputies found the flatbed trailer and backhoe. The 2009 Chevrolet 3500 flatbed has still not been recovered.
Above is a picture of the stolen truck. The fuel cell and tool box on the flatbed near the cab have been removed and will not be on the bed of the truck.
