The truck, holding a blue 55 gallon drum, was taken from the 3000 block of Hill Road in Lake Country. It had been locked and the owner had possession of all keys. It was later recovered as an abandoned vehicle from an open field near Duck Lake between Jim Bailey Road and Highway 97, just north of the Commonwealth Road Trailer Park. The truck was left parked on top of a large dirt pile and had been used to tear around the open dirt field.
