Monday, Oct. 18, 2010, posted at 1:52 p.m. CDT – Police in Dallas are looking for a stolen truck.

Police say a thief or thieves stole a purple and black 2000 Kenworth W900 from a Dallas truck stop.

According to OOIDA’s TRACER Web site, the truck and reefer were parked at the Pilot Travel Centers truck stop on Lancaster Road. The truck has black fenders and a chrome front bumper with a Kenworth cutout and lots of chrome.

The truck has a vehicle identification number that reads 1XKWD69X0YJ846821. The truck’s Kentucky license plates read A15010.

TRACER, the Transportation Alert Communication and Emergency Response program, was launched in the spring 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 if they have information to report about stolen cargo or missing persons, etc.

Anyone with information that leads to the Kenworth’s recovery may be eligible for a $500 cash reward.
