Anchorage police say they have found a U-Haul truck that was reported stolen sometime around 11 a.m. Wednesday.


The truck is being rented by UPS and contained “multiple pieces of mail and packages,” according to a release sent out by Jennifer Castro, Anchorage Police Department spokesperson.


“The UPS driver was delivering a package to residence when the truck was stolen and driven away,” Castro wrote.


When it was found abandoned, it was empty, police said. They confirmed the home where it was parked was not connected to the theft.


The 14-foot truck had a UPS magnet on each side of the cab, Arizona license plate “AD49490” and a long nylon rope hanging from the back. It was stolen from the area of 800 W. 57th Ave, the release states.


Clarification: A spokesperson for the U.S. Postal Service wrote KTVA to inform readers that mail carried by the USPS was not involved with this theft.
