Bellevue man loses truck to crook, theft captured on surveillance video


BELLEVUE, Ne (FOX42KPTM) - A Bellevue man now has to find a new ride to get to and from work. That's because someone stole his truck in his Olde Towne neighborhood.

"I came out here and I noticed my truck was gone," said James Vansomeren, the owner of the truck.

Vansomeren is now looking for answers. Surveillance video showed someone breaking into his truck.

"It's just really bad."

Vansomeren's truck was sitting outside his home this week. That's when he says the person in the surveillance video took off with it.

"I don't see why anybody would want to steal my truck, but I guess this guy must have come in, some low life."

Gone are several valuable items for Vansomeren. Those include a radio and gift cards.

"I don't understand why something like this would happen."

The single father must now rely on family to get him to and from work.

"Anybody that can give me a ride has been more than willing."

That's the good part. For Vansomeren, the bad part is knowing the person responsible is still out there roaming free.
