Polk County Sheriff's deputies are seeking information about the theft of a truck from a business.

Between the hours of 1:00 and 3:00 a.m. on Friday, July 5, 2013, the suspect seen here entered the fenced property of Baynard Plumbing, located at the intersection of SR 60 and Old Bartow Road in Lake Wales, and stole a white 2005 Chevrolet Silverado belonging to the business - the stolen truck was recovered the next day but the suspect is still unidentified and at large.

The same suspect also burglarized the business directly across the street, Grits Tires, during the same time frame.  He is described as a white male between 16 and 20 years of age.
