Stolen Dunkley’s truck recovered quickly
A thief stole a Dunkley's Dairy truck from Hamilton yesterday afternoon — but the vehicle was recovered about three hours later.
Michael Dunkley, owner of the business and a former One Bermuda Alliance premier, said the management team at the dairy told him the truck had been taken at about 2pm.
Mr Dunkley said: “There was a driver doing his route through town with a helper. They parked somewhere on Reid Street and both got out of the vehicle.
“From what I was told, one was on one side of the road and the other was on the other side, and when they came back the truck was gone.
“The manager went to the police and then I put it out on social media.”
The vehicle was found before 5pm on the Railway Trail in Riviera Road, Southampton.
Mr Dunkley was happy that the truck was recovered and that no one had been injured.
He said: “Vehicles are not cheap, and that truck is probably worth about $75,000. It's a refrigerated vehicle with a lot of product in it.
“Then you have a person driving the vehicle who might not have experience with that kind of truck, and there's a real risk to other road users.
“Thankfully, it appears that everything is all right.”
He added: “We are very grateful to the police for their quick response and everything they have done to return the truck.”
