Stolen truck, trailer found in Miami minus cargo

By Charlie Morasch, Land Line staff writer | Tuesday, June 23, 2009

Authorities recovered a stolen truck and trailer this week in Miami – without its load 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.

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 to report any information about stolen cargo or missing persons, etc.
