Thanks for the information.
It is VERY important that you make a police report to the Tarrent County Sheriff's Department. There are a number of reasons to make this report:
1. If you KNOW that this person has the truck and the truck is used in a crime, it is POSSIBLE that you could be held liable for any damages that result from the crime.
2. It is POSSIBLE that if you KNOW that this person has the truck and KNOW that s/he has a criminal history, you need to protect yourself from any possible link between you and the person. If s/he commits a crime, you don't want to be even questioned as to your knowledge of any involvement.
3. If you report the truck as stolen, the police (sheriff) can put out a BOLO (be on the lookout for) the truck. Also, the license plate can be reported as stolen along with the truck. If the plate was switched to another vehicle, the police agency may pull the vehicle over and either ticket or arrest the person driving the vehicle. If the plate is still on the vehicle, then it will make it easier for the police (sheriff) to find the vehicle.
4. You need to get law enforcement involved for your own safety. If you don't, there is nothing to stop the perpetrator from coming back and trying to do it again, or forcing you to give the person a vehicle. Law enforcement can do drive by's of your office, etc. to make sure that their presence is known. Also, it is very important to provide law enforcement with the name, address, phone, etc. that you were given. It is possible that the information given to you was false or was stolen from someone (identity theft. If the information was valid, it will certainly assist law enforcement in catching the perpetrator.
Once you make the police report, you can contact your insurance company and make a claim. You will be able to provide a copy of the report to your insurance agency and any other pertinent information that you may have. The insurance company will most likely contact the law enforcement agency and also conduct its own investigation. The time frame for being able to collect on your policy will vary. The company may want to wait a period of time to see if the vehicle is recovered, may want to take a recorded statement from you, and seek to follow up any other information that you have on the perpetrator.
