when I saw this on Ocala.com I thought it was a bit unusual to be relaying 11 vehicles one of which is a f-250. I’m thinking it may have been more than one ruck that dropped them and more than one truck picking them up or the load has 10 very small cars so that the 11th vehicle could be an f-250. I titled my post with the word missing instead of stolen because one of my trucks left a car at a transport lot because he couldn’t fit them all on and left the key in the “secret” tailpipe location. In our case it appears that it was mistakenly transported by another auto transporter because about 2 weeks later it showed up in the same spot with the keys back in the tail-pipe. It had normal road grime but no extra miles.
Truck stolen from Adesa Auction
Last Modified: Thursday, August 7, 2008 at 4:06 p.m.
It was taken sometime between Tuesday evening and Wednesday morning, according to a Sheriff’s Office report.
Employee Amber Valvo told deputies that on Tuesday around 5 p.m., 11 vehicles were delivered to Adesa Auction. Valvo said the vehicles were left outside of the fenced compound because another auto transport company was supposed to pick them that night.
Valvo said people with the transport company didn’t arrive until Wednesday around 8:30 a.m. to pick up the 11 vehicles. They noticed that the 2006 Ford F-250, valued at about $22,000, was missing.
Valvo told deputies the keys had been left in the truck.
