Habitat For Humanity's Restore Truck Stolen

Posted: Updated:

LEXINGTON, Ky (LEX 18) Cameras captured the moment thieves stole an old truck from the Habitat for Humanity Restore in Lexington. Now the store's director says they are scrambling to find the truck, or a replacement, before it starts to hurt business.

Employees left the truck in its usual spot on Friday, but when they returned Monday, it was gone.

The thieves were caught on camera.

"Sure enough, you can see at 5:30 in the morning, one car drives in and that car and our truck drive out just a few minutes later, so this was someone who really knew what they were coming after," said the Restore Director Jim Kreiner.

Kreiner knows the old truck was not stolen for a joyride.

"Dual wheeled, steel flatbed, 1985 Toyota pick up truck, a little rust on the hood," he said.

The parts for that truck are in high demand.

"The parts on these trucks, because they're so old and so durable, they're really valuable," said Kreiner.

Employees worry that this theft will hurt to the store. It was used for many different things.

"Meeting with donors and picking up supplies and materials," he said. "This is a busy place. We're one of the top 10 busiest restores in the country."

If that truck is not found, the Habitat for Humanity Restore will need another one. They're hoping someone may have one to donate.

If you have any information about this crime, contact Lexington Police. If you can help out the Restore or have a truck to donate, give them a call at (859) 252-2224.
