Red truck

Lincoln police say they are looking for the driver of this red truck, spotted in the area where $350,000 of medical supplies to be picked up by FedEx disappeared Monday.

Police say $35,000 of medical supplies in shipping boxes disappeared from a 34-year-old Lincoln man's driveway in less than 20 minutes Monday afternoon. 

And now police are looking for a red, extended cab pickup they think may be involved, Officer Erin Spilker said.

It happened at about 4 p.m. in the 7800 block of South 97th Bay, near 98th Street and Andermatt Drive. Spilker said the man told police he put the spinal implants and medical instruments out by his garage near his driveway to be picked up by FedEx. But 20 minutes later, when FedEx showed up, they were gone.

The man reported the theft later that night.

Spilker said neighbors in the area saw a red pickup driving in the area around the same time. Police want to talk to the driver.
