Police in Louisiana are looking for a stolen truck and want to spread the word to professional truckers who might see the missing tractor.
Police say a thief or thieves stole a white 2003 Freightliner Columbia while it was parked in Harvey, LA.
According to OOIDA’s TRACER Web site, the truck was parked on Lapalco Avenue in Harvey, which is in Louisiana’s Jefferson Parish.
The Freightliner has “Graebel Van Lines” painted on the doors and has a vehicle identification number that reads 1FUJA6VX3LJ49641. It has no license plates or mud flaps.
TRACER, the Transportation Alert Communication and Emergency Response program, was launched early in 2009 by OOIDA. The program is a two-way communication system that both sends alerts to members and coordinates information received from trucking members.
Members can sign up to receive text messages and e-mail alerts for truck thefts and missing persons.
Truckers may call the TRACER hotline at 866-950-2291 or visit www.tracersystem.us to get the latest advisory or to report information about stolen cargo or missing persons, etc.
