Police in Orlando, FL, are looking for information about a stolen truck and loaded trailer that had about $100,000 worth of paint.

The rig was stolen earlier this week from West Concord Road in Orlando. OOIDA’s TRACER program posted information and sent out e-mail and text alerts about the theft on Monday.

According to TRACER, the truck is a 2005 Freightliner. The trailer is a white dry van, 1997 Trailmobile. The trailer had a load of paint worth an estimated $100,000.

The word “Penske” was on both doors of the truck, and the truck’s license plate is 1143123 in Indiana and C8136Z in Florida.

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 to get the latest advisory or if they have information to report about stolen cargo or missing persons, etc.
