Monroe police: Rental truck taken for an oil change and never returned

Monroe policeA U-Haul rental truck may have been stolen from a Monroe business by two individuals who claimed they were taking the truck for maintenance on behalf of U-Haul.

A U-Haul field manager told police Jan. 30 that a 2008 Ford box truck, which was 14-feet-long with Arizona plates, was missing and presumed stolen from a Route 25 motorsports business that also operates as a U-Haul facility.

Employees of the Monroe business said the truck had been given to “two Hispanic males” who claimed they were taking the vehicle for an oil change on behalf of U-Haul.

The Monroe business employees said the truck was turned over without any paperwork being exchanged, and couldn’t provide an exact date when it had been taken, according to the report.

The field manager said records indicated the truck had been brought to the Monroe U-Haul facility on Dec. 31 after a one-way rental.

It then was discovered missing on Jan. 10 when it was to be re-rented, but police weren’t contacted for awhile because U-Haul vehicles sometimes turn up at the wrong facility.
