Sources tell WWBT/NBC12 that around $200,000 of presidential equipment was stolen from a Richmond Marriott hotel location in advance of Wednesday’s presidential visit to Chesterfield, Va.
The vehicle was later recovered Monday afternoon in the parking lot of a Holiday Inn Express near the airport. Sources tell WWBT/NBC12 that law enforcement agencies were seen examining a white truck that was parked there.
There are no indications of whether equipment was taken from the truck.
“No classified or sensitive information was in the vehicle. We take incidents such as this very seriously and a formal investigation is continuing,” a Defense Information Systems Agency spokesperson told the news outlet.
At this time, there's no word of any ransom, or any suspects.
