Trailer Swiped From Motel Parking Lot
Police officers in Anchorage, AK
hope tips from the public will help them recover a stolen pickup
truck... and the trailer attached to it, which had some valuable
aviation-related cargo inside.
The Anchorage Daily News reports a set of Cessna aircraft wings
were inside the trailer, which was swiped along with its tow
vehicle from a Motel 6 parking lot Saturday night.
Officials say the truck is a 1994 Ford F-250 SuperCab 4x4, with
the Alaska license plate FCP 369. The trailer is a white, 'V'-nose
bumper-pull Pace American, with Wyoming license plate 13868. The
trailer has two axles, with one set of white rims and one set of
Should anyone stumble across the wings sans trailer, they're
painted white and silver.
The local Crime Stoppers chapter is offering up to a $1,000 cash
reward for information regarding the wing-theft, if those tips lead
to an arrest. The owner will pay a $1,000 reward, as well,
regardless of an arrest -- they just want the wings back.
