DAVIESS CO., Ind. (WFIE) - We got a look at security footage from the night a Grippo’s Potato Chip truck was stolen.

The Owner of A&D Distributors in Evansville, Lloyd Young, told 14 News he believes the person who stole his truck may have known the location of his security cameras.

He says the car approached from the side of the building where there were no cameras.

The truck was stolen around 6 Saturday morning and the thief was only there for ten minutes.

“He was not interested in any other trucks that are around on the lot,” Young said. “He went straight for that truck. That’s definitely the truck he wanted. It looks to me in the video as if he had a key. I don’t think he hot-wired that truck that fast. I don’t. I think he had a key to that truck.”

Young says about eight pallets of Grippos worth about $6,000 were also stolen.

However, police say he dumped them to make room for tires he stole from another establishment.

Deputies are still looking for the truck, and ask if anyone has seen it to call them at 812-254-1060.
