ROCK SPRINGS (7/21/15) - The Sweetwater County Sheriff’s Office is seeking information on an antique truck stolen from a ranch north of Rock Springs.
Sheriff Mike Lowell said the truck was taken around noon on July 12 from a ranch south of Eden on U.S. Highway 191. He described it as a green 1940 1-ton Chevrolet with rusted fenders and no hood. The truck is a flatbed with wooden cargo racks.
The truck does not run. A witness reported that it was loaded onto a flatbed trailer drawn by a late 1990s to early 2000s black Ford diesel pickup; an extended-cab four-wheel-drive with Wyoming license plates.
The black Ford pickup, towing the flatbed and stolen Chevrolet, left the area northbound on Highway 191.
Authorities said the truck was parked at the spot where it was stolen for many years, and was last registered in the 1970s.
Anyone with information is asked to contact the Sweetwater County Sheriff’s Office at (307) 922-5321.
