A truck theft ring that has been active in New Jersey since mid-2012 may be responsible for a recent theft in Linden, according to Doug Morris, OOIDA Director of Security Operations.

OOIDA’s TRACER website reports a white 2007 Kenworth truck was stolen between Jan. 12 and Jan. 17 from an address on Industrial Lane in Linden. The truck is a W900L Aerocab raised-roof sleeper. “Hightech Logistics” is in red lettering on the sides of the cab.

TRACER lists a New Jersey license plate number of AP228D and a VIN number of 1XKWDB9X67R160453.

A $500 reward is being offered for information leading to the recovery of this truck. Call 202-246-2698.

TRACER, the Transportation Alert Communication and Emergency Response program, was launched in 2009 by OOIDA. The program is a two-way communication system that sends alerts to members and coordinates information received from trucking members.

Members can sign up to receive text messages and email 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.
