KENNEWICK, WA - Last week NBC Right Now tracked a crime trend of entire trucks from farms being stolen. Now, there is good news coming from the story.
The truck recently stolen from the Edward's family farm in Kennewick is back. After watching our report last week and recognizing the truck, a woman at a Kennewick apartment complex called Kennewick police. She said the truck had been at her apartment complex for days.
On that '61 GMC, which had been in the Edward's family for decades, were a number of expensive welding tools. Those are still missing.
Having the truck back that his now deceased grandfather used to drive and he and his cousins learned to drive in is priceless for Dan Edwards. "The rest of it kind of hurts a bit to replace it, but this we couldn't really replace. Now we can get it all painted up. You never know how much something means to you until it's gone so now we have to give it some more TLC," explained Edwards.
He went on to tell us Kennewick Police will continue to investigate just how the truck was stolen and where those missing parts could be. For Edwards, just having that piece of his family's history back is a happier ending than he expected.
