BRUNSWICK, Maine — A stolen truck belonging to a Bath landscape company was found in Brunswick Thursday morning after it was missing for a day.
A red 2008 Ford F-250, a three-quarter-ton truck belonging to Jorgensen Landscaping, was stolen from 227 Arrowsic Road. Deputy Matt Shiers, who is investigating the theft along with Detective Adam Temple, said a trailer that was attached to the truck was unhooked and power equipment worth more than $10,000 was taken from inside the facility and loaded into the truck.
The theft was reported to the sheriff’s department at 6:42 a.m. Wednesday. Shiers said it is believed the theft occurred sometime between 1 a.m. and 1:45 a.m. Wednesday.
The stolen truck was seen on Congress Avenue in Bath headed toward State Road in West Bath.
Brunswick Police Captain Mark Waltz said this morning that a Bridge Road resident saw the truck Wednesday and thought someone was doing work in the area, but as time went on the truck remained with the windows rolled down as it rained. The resident called Brunswick police today at 9:16 a.m., and when they arrived, they determined the truck was stolen and contacted Sagadahoc County Sheriff’s Department.
Shiers said the company has several of the red trucks as part of its fleet. Anyone who may have seen the truck or anything suspicious early Wednesday morning should call the sheriff’s department at 443-8201.
