The search is on for a Cypress Paving truck stolen from the Hillcrest Church parking lot on New Year’s Eve.
The truck and trailer were borrowed to haul a skidsteer to clear snow from the parking lot in preparation for Joe’s Place Youth Centre’s Voltage New Year’s Eve party.
According to a Facebook post, the skidsteer was unloaded from the trailer at 4 p.m. By 4:40 p.m., the hitch had been unpinned, leaving the hitch and the trailer, but the truck was gone.
“The keys were left in it just because it was going to be a quicker job and there were lots of people coming and going in the parking lot. So, there wasn't a real sense of need, I guess, at the time to take the keys out of it or any thought about it,” said Cypress Paving owner Jerred Williams.
The truck is described as a white one-ton Dodge Ram crew cab with a flat deck with a toolbox and slip tank. The truck also has Cypress Paving decals on the doors.
Williams said the truck has been seen around town but has not been recovered.
“It was seen on New Year's Eve on Marshall Crescent in VLA. That was the last time it was seen in town and we haven't heard or seen it since then,” he said.
Anyone with information on the whereabouts of the truck is asked to contact the Moose Jaw Police Service.
