ANCHORAGE, Alaska (AP) - Police in Anchorage say a thief drove off a U-Haul truck filled with packages being delivered to city residents.

The 14-foot truck had been rented by UPS.

A driver just before 11 a.m. Wednesday was delivering packages to a home on west 57th Avenue when the truck was driven off.

The stolen truck has an Arizona license plate, AD49490. The U-Haul truck number is DC4579K.

A long, gray, red and blue nylon rope dangled out of the back of the truck and likely would drag on the ground.

The passenger side door had a lock dangling by a wire.

Both the driver and passenger door bore 5-by-14-inch UPS magnetic signs. Police say the signs may have been removed.

Police are asking the public’s help in finding the truck.
