Okay, I'll be the first here....why were the keys in the truck? Where was the city worker that was supposed to be driving it? Who was supposed to be watching the inmate?

If the keys were actually in the truck the city employee should be fired for stupidity as well as the person responsible for watching the inmate. If the prison system can't send enough personnel to adequately supervise the inmates then they shouldn't have a work release program.

Has he been caught yet? I would imagine a Chevy Silverado with blue plates would easily be located. It can't be far.....

As with all things, you get what you pay for. While the city saves $$ in labor costs, it increases the need for supervision of the inmates. Obviously, somebody dropped the ball. And hmmmmm was correct, why WERE the keys left in the truck? Anybody could have walked by and stolen the city vehicle, not just the inmates.

Will the city employee receive a written warning? Doubtful.... I'd like to see a follow up on this story once the inmate is caught and the truck is recovered.... waiting.....

Oh, to answer David, I've helped with the city wide cleanups, I helped elderly neighbors clear up the storm damage and get their tree debris curbside. I myself am considered "elderly", but I do what I can to volunteer and donate $$ to local charitable causes. I'm not one to sit on the sidelines and complain while I sit idle behind a computer.
