Molino Company’s Truck Stolen, Flipped Over In Pensacola

July 30, 2008

A truck belonging to a Molino company was totaled in Pensacola Wednesday after it was stolen by a group of teenagers.

The Chevrolet Avalanche was stolen from a store at New Warrington Road and Jackson Street in Pensacola.

Gary Criswell, 47, was driving the truck about 1:00 Tuesday afternoon when he stepped inside the store for a few minutes. That’s when the truck was stolen. The truck belongs to Criswell’s employer, D&B Builders of Molino.

The Escambia Sheriff’ Department received a tip that the truck had been spotted in the Montclair area. A deputy passed the truck on Massachusetts Avenue about 3:30. By the time the deputy had turned around, the truck had been wrecked on nearby Warehouse Lane. The Chevy Avalanche was on its side just off the roadway.

Deputies located two teens that were believed to have been in the truck. One was located at a nearby business, and the other was located at an apartment complex. One was seriously injured; the other was suffering from severe injuries. Both were transported Sacred Heart Hospital. Deputies believe there may have been two more teenagers in the truck at the time of the accident.

The accident is under investigation by the Florida Highway Patrol.
