Disabled veteran’s truck stolen

A disabled veteran discovered his truck was stolen from his apartment in Henrico Thursday morning.

David Kilgore’s silver 2015 Toyota Tundra was equipped with an automatic step-side that when activated allowed him to get in and out with ease.

Kilgore says uses the truck to get to the VA Hospital where he works with other wounded veterans, but he says until he gets that vehicle back, he’s not going anywhere.

If you have any information to the whereabouts of Kilgore’s car or have any information to the string of car-related thefts Henrico Police is investigating at apartments near North Gayton and West Broad Street, you’re asked to call Crime Stoppers.
