Someone Swiped A Town Sanding Truck In Massachusetts This AM
Bread, milk, eggs, and a...sand truck?
New England is bracing for a huge storm this weekend. This morning, a suggestion to be "ready for the storm" was taken much too far. It's one thing to make a run to Home Depot for a five pound bag of salt. An addition trip to the gas station to ensure you have enough fuel for the snowblower is also a smart idea. However, swiping a sand truck belonging to the city of Newton, Massachusetts is not.
However, that's exactly what happened.
According to NECN, police say a town worker had his sand truck stolen from him Friday morning. The worker was inside a restaurant, and the suspect drove off in his truck. The suspect likely wasn't fully prepared to handle the machine. A short time after stealing the vehicle, the truck crashed on Beacon Street, and then a town worker found the suspect bleeding on Beacon and Washington streets, according to NECN. The suspect was taken into custody.
Panicking for a storm taken to a new level.
