$7500 Reward offered for stolen truck and trailer

Dougherty County Police are looking for a stolen tractor trailer packed with coffee.  Now Raven Transport is offering a $7500 reward for the recovery of the truck and trailer.

The 2010 Kenworth Daycab and a 2009 53 foot trailer were stolen from Raven Transport on Power Lane over the weekend. 

The truck and trailer are worth $105,000 dollars. The 39,000 pounds of Folgers Coffee is worth more than $139,000 dollars.  Investigators say it could be tough for the thieves to sell that much coffee.

"We have flea markets around here where people can sell just about anything. I don't know where else they can take it to sell that large an amount," said Sgt. Chad Kirkpatrick, Dougherty County Police.

The keys for the truck were not stolen, so it was probably hotwired. 

Both the truck and the trailer had Florida tags.

If you have any information, call Dougherty County Police at 430-6600 or CRIMESTOPPERS at 436-TIPS. A $7500 reward is being offered for the recovery of the truck and trailer.
