Family on the hunt for stolen rig after they sunk their life savings into it


A family is on the search for their semi truck after it was stolen from a Love’s truck stop. 

The white semi truck was stolen from the Love’s near Interstate 40 and Central in Albuquerque, New Mexico on Monday, February 7th and has “Comarca” written on the doors. 

According to KRQE News, the family had recently spent their life savings to buy the semi truck and start up their own trucking company. 

“Everything went into that. It’s very devastating. He’s been home this whole week and we’re starting to fall behind on bills. The insurance on the vehicle itself is 16-hundred dollars a month,” Erica Rivera, owner of the stolen truck, said.

Rivera says that she has spent the last week contacting police and driving around Albuquerque in hopes that she will spot it. 

In addition to needing the truck for income, the Rivera family says that they are concerned about the safety of the public if the thief hasn’t been trained to drive a truck.

Anyone with information on the rig is urged to contact the Albuquerque Police Department.
