TUPELO, Miss. (WTVA) - Tupelo Police need help finding a truck that was stolen from the parking lot at Scruggs Farm, Lawn and Garden.

The store's surveillance system caught some of it on camera.

"We had some robbers come in here and took our gates down and stole a lawnmower and stole our 40-foot flatbed trailer and our truck to pull it with," said Mitchell Scruggs, the store's owner. "It's a 2008 Dodge Cummins diesel 1-ton truck. And they took our gates down and left with our truck, trailer and lawnmower. We had it all back here locked up. They took two gates down to get in here." 

Scruggs said the truck has his store's name and logo on it, so it should be very recognizable.

Anyone with information can contact the Tupelo Police Department.
