Late Tuesday night, Seattle police officers recovered a U-Haul truck stolen from Issaquah on Sunday.

The household belongings inside the truck — including rifles, handguns and ammunition — remain missing. Issaquah police continue to investigate the case.

Seattle officers located the truck in the 9200 block of Eighth Avenue South after a citizen heard about the missing truck on the radio and called police. The caller recognized the Viking ship emblazoned on the side of the truck.

Issaquah police said the truck disappeared between 1:30-8:50 p.m. Sunday. In addition to the firearms and ammunition, the contents included 1,200 Australian silver coins dated from 2000 and 2008.

People with information about the case should call the Issaquah Police Department at 837-3200.

    Of course they recover the truck but not the contents. The police in this area are the WORST.
