Ford trucks taken from Farmington dealer

FARMINGTON — Farmington Police late Monday were continuing their search for one of two brand-new F150 trucks taken from the lot of Farmington Ford early Saturday morning. One of the trucks was found later Saturday morning driven off the road and burned beyond recognition on Greenwood Street in Greenwood.

James White, general manager of Farmington Ford, called police after arriving at the Route 2 and 4 dealership about 7 a.m. Saturday to find glass on the pavement and two empty slots where the vehicles were parked, said Farmington Police Officer Michael Adcock.

Along with the two stolen 2010 Ford F150's, one blue with pearl trim and the other red, a third truck was damaged. The blue truck was believed to have been involved in an accident or run off the roadway and then burned in Greenwood. It was unrecognizable except for the tailgate and dealer plate which State Police tracked back to the Farmington dealer, Adcock said.

The dealer plate was reported taken from a truck on the opposite side of Farmington Ford's lot. The red truck remains unaccounted for, he said.

The third truck, an extended cab, had a rear window smashed.

Police estimate the vehicles and damage to amount to about $75,000. One of the trucks taken carried a price tag of over $38,000 and the other $35,000. The window replacement is estimated at about $600, he said.

Farmington Police Detective Marc Bowering gathered evidence at the scene and has sent it to the state crime lab while police continue their investigation and are working on finding the red Ford F150, he said.
