MANATEE -- About $100,000 worth of fish is missing after a truck Friday night was driven off a storage yard in Palmetto and abandoned in Pinellas County, according to the Manatee County Sheriff’s Office.
The truck and its seafood cargo were taken at about 11:30 p.m. in the 1900 block of 28th Avenue East in Palmetto.
A GPS system indicated the truck was driven over the Skyway Bridge, where it stopped at another truck storage area, a media release said. The truck then appeared to have been unloaded, then abandoned on the north side of the bridge, before being recovered by the Pinellas County Sheriff’s Office.
There are no suspects or descriptions of any suspects.
Anyone with more information should call the Manatee County Sheriff’s Office at (941) 747-3011.
