Tractor Trailer Stolen From Goodwill Store
Detectives are reviewing surveillance video in an attempt to identify the suspects who hot-wired a tractor trailer and drove it off from the parking lot of the Goodwill Store on S. Jefferson Ave. Saturday night. Video surveillance showed two individuals removing chock blocks and closing the trailer doors. The vehicle is then shown leaving the loading dock area at approximately 2 am. The trailer contained clothes and hangers that had been shipped to Cookeville from Lebanon and which were to be unloaded the next morning. The value of the truck, trailer and cargo was put at $125,000. Less than an hour after the theft, the truck was located on a residential street in Sparta. Detective David Gragg is investigating.
