Truck stolen, used to smuggle people from Mexico...

Well my truck was stolen late Tuesday night or early Wensday morning.. I get a call today saying they found my truck 2 hours south of Houston. So i go there to pick up the truck found that its been trashed. Looked like they had about 10 people in the cab and a few in the bed. Bottles of water, burger wrappers, cigarette buts everywhere.. Look like they even rolled up a joint.. The front end had buggs all over it, looks like they went on a trip.. You can tell the truck has been driven off road, you can see red sand all under the truck. I found a backpack , ski mask, a few hats , shoes and shirts that do not belong to me... You can see it in the video...

Glad you got it back - Does the police take any prints off it to see if they can figure out who stole it or who was in it?

Should clean up good - Might take a bit, but beside the ignition cylinder, it doesn't look like they banged it up.

Just wish people would leave stuff alone that isn't theirs.

What makes you think they were smuggling people? It looks like it was stolen and then taken for a joy ride. They might have even committed other crimes while they had your truck.

When I was a pup a friend of mine wired his 63 Ford unibody to a Model T coil.An insulated key switch was used. anyone that touched the truck got a rather nasty shock.Bad news was it seemed someone was always waiting in a parking lot to kick his ***,lol and the battery went dead rather quickly.It would throw a spark over an inch long.Like an ignition coil on a point type ignition.You ever hold a spark plug while someone cranked the motor? same effect.
