(KMOV) -- O’Fallon, Mo., police are looking for two men who they say stole a pickup truck and a gun from a St. Charles County Sheriff’s Department patrol vehicle Tuesday morning.
Police say a man stole a white 2005 Ford F-150 pickup truck just after 6 a.m. Tuesday morning in O’Fallon’s Bryan Valley subdivision. They say two men came to the neighborhood together in a black or dark colored truck before one of the men got out and stole the pickup. The pair then traveled a short distance to the home of the officer where they forcibly entered the locked patrol car and stole a handgun, according to police.
The owner of the stolen truck, Robert Steinhoff, is a concrete refinisher and his wife says his tools are tied to his livelihood. Steinhoff’s truck was stolen after he left it running to warm up while he waited inside his home.
