Polk County Sheriff’s Office detectives are asking for the public’s help in an Vehicle Theft investigation.

Shortly before 11:00 pm, on Wednesday, July 10, 2013, an unknown type of vehicle drove to Image Depot located at 3502 DMG Drive, Lakeland.  Two occupants of the vehicle got out and forcibly entered a 2005 Dodge Ram, pickup truck parked on the property, then the occupant(s) of the first vehicle and those inside the stolen truck fled the area.
