The Hawaii Red Cross disaster truck that was stolen in Hilo prior to Tropical Storm Iselle has been recovered.
The truck was being used to transport supplies to emergency shelters and it was supposed to be used for post-disaster response, such as comfort items and cleanup kits.
Red Cross officials say the emergency response vehicle was stolen on the Big Island sometime between Wednesday night and Thursday morning.
"Whoever stole it had to break through a chain-linked fence in order to get it. They punched the ignition out. It's a Red Cross F-150 Ford truck that's a four-wheel drive that we need really for our disaster operations," said Coralie Matayoshi, CEO of Hawaii Red Cross.
No word on the condition of the vehicle.
