The Newark Police Department is investigating a vehicle theft that occurred on March 4, 2017 at approximately 7:00 a.m. at the rear of ACME, 100 College Square, according to NPD Spokesman Lieutenant Fred Nelson.
A delivery driver for Flowers Baking Company of Oxford reported that he left the keys inside of his work truck and went inside ACME’s loading dock to retrieve a cart. He stated that he returned 5-10 minutes later and found the 2012 Isuzu box truck, valued at $35,000 gone.
The truck contained approximately $2,300.00 worth of undelivered baked goods when it was stolen. The truck was subsequently located by two employees of Flowers Baking Company on March 6, 2017 on Route 213 in Chesapeake City, MD.
The truck’s cargo appeared to be intact when it was recovered. The vehicle was towed to a local tow yard and the owners were instructed on how to retrieve the vehicle.
