He left the key in the console so the wife could get me to put some gas in it and drive it home. Somehow she forgot to tell me and when he got home the truck was gone. After figuring out it wasn't a joke he called the police and a Deputy came out and took a report. Turned out that if my wife put the truck in her name to keep the ex from getting her share the ex could drive it just like he could. Wasn't the case.
On the way home from work my son's fiance saw the truck at one of the local gas stations and pulled in since she thought he had got it back. A young guy ran in paid for the gas and sped off. She saw him turn off the highway onto a side road and called the police. Four patrol cars with the lightbars flashing came by a couple of minutes later. Still don't know the result but the gas station has cameras on each pump and a couple near the register.
According to the police officer who took the report last month there over over 35 vehicles stolen just in our county. Hopefully this will be the last one.
