Ada County Sheriff’s detectives are still searching for anyone with information about a white pickup truck used in a theft on June 17.

The thieves used the vehicle to steal several thousand dollars worth of landscaping equipment and tools from the Idaho Department of Parks and Recreation last month, according to the sheriff’s office.

Deputies began investigating after getting a report of a break-in at the park office in the 5600 block of Warm Springs Avenue.

They determined that someone broke into two locked storage sheds and stole several items, including a chainsaw, a hedge trimmer, a leaf blower, a toolbox and two generators.

Surveillance footage captured images of a white pickup truck, which appears to be an early-era 2010s Nissan Titan, with the stolen items in the back driving away from the scene that morning.

Anyone who recognizes the pickup or knows about the break-in should send an email to cau@adaweb.net or call Ada County non-emergency dispatch at 208-377-6790.
