Stolen FedEx truck turns up mi­nus a lot of pack­ages

South Florida Sun-Sentinel (Sunday) - - Local - By Doug Phillips

Op­por­tunis­tic thieves took ad­van­tage of a FedEx de­liv­ery driver’s brief main­te­nance stop and were able to get away with his truck and steal most of its con­tents.

It hap­pened about 10 a.m. Tues­day in Del­ray Beach.

The FedEx driver had just de­liv­ered a pack­age to a home on South­west 15th Av­enue, just east of I-95, when he no­ticed that his rear-view cam­era was cloudy — so he stepped out­side to wipe the lens, Del­ray Beach po­lice said.

“While stand­ing on the back of the truck, he felt the ve­hi­cle move and saw two men in the cab,” po­lice spokes­woman Dani Moschella said.

The driver scraped his el­bow and knee when he fell off the mov­ing truck that Two thieves stole this FedEx truck from Del­ray Beach Tues­day morn­ing. It was later found by Broward deputies in Pom­pano Beach.

headed south on 15th Av­enue and then east on South­west Sixth Street.

The truck wouldn’t be lost for long. Its GPS tech­nol­ogy tracked the ve­hi­cle to Pom­pano Beach where it was re­cov­ered by deputies from the Broward Sher­iff ’s Of­fice.

The two thieves were gone and so were most of the

pack­ages in­side the truck.

Ac­cord­ing to Moschella, the truck had been car­ry­ing more than 100 pack­ages and when deputies re­cov­ered it there were only 58.

Po­lice ask any­one with in­for­ma­tion about this in­ci­dent to con­tact Del­ray Beach De­tec­tive Mike Shiner at 561-243-7828.
