Thieves seek out dump trucks as they are easy to rebrand and then sell to companies located in Southern American. The parts also are worth a good amount when sold to others worldwide. If the Dump Truck is not found within a short period of time, there is a high likelihood it is either not in the states or already dissembled. Making its recovery very difficult.
If any type of tracking system was included in the dump truck it would have been found within hours by local police and the owners would have their property back.
If you have seen this Dump Truck on Monday evening or know any other information regarding its whereabouts please contact the Pine Country Sheriff’s Office at 320-629-8380. Image thanks to CBS3 Duluth
