| 8/22/2002

Owner-operator and OOIDA member Patricia Duff is asking for fellow truckers to help recover her company's tractor-trailer. Duff believes the truck may be in the Long Beach, CA, or Los Angeles area.

Duff, owner of PJ Duff Trucking in Palmdale, CA, says the tractor and trailer were stolen out of a dirt lot alongside California 138 near Palmdale at about 10 p.m. Aug. 18. The trailer was loaded with oil barrels.

The tractor is a 1993 Kenworth T600 Stevens Unit #25 and the #45 trailer is white. There also is a 4-foot by 4-foot September 11 tribute decal on the back of the trailer door in the upper right corner.

Anyone with information should contact the Palmdale Sheriff at (661) 243-4300. The case number is 602-13615-2665-090.
