(KOIN) – Police are searching for a woman who used a U.S. Army soldier’s checkbook after it was swiped from a stolen truck last month.
On the night of July 14, Portland police report that the soldier’s 2002 Dodge Ram pickup truck was stolen from outside Red’s Bar & Grill, located on Southeast Foster Road. It was found four hours later abandoned at Southeast 80th Avenue and Bush Street. Several personal items were missing from the truck, including the soldier’s checkbook.
