Run,TOTUS, Run !!

First, I have to admit that I slept in very late – so I don’t know when this headline first appeared on Drudge, but reading it suited me better than a whole potful of coffee!

The “story” is a bit sloppy, but here it is so far:

We’re told the truck was parked at the Virginia Center Commons Courtyard Marriott in advance on Wednesday’s presidential visit to Chesterfield.

Sources said inside that vehicle was about $200,000 worth of sound equipment, several podiums and presidential seals, behind which only the President himself can stand.

They told NBC12 around 12:30 Monday afternoon that truck was recovered in the parking lot of the Holiday Inn Express near the airport and hotel staff confirm police activity.  One guest we spoke with said he saw various law enforcement agencies examining a white box truck parked there.

According to him, the entire back parking lot was blocked off as Henrico Police along with “lots of guys in suits” investigated.  He said the truck had no markings and no indication anything special was inside.  That leads to another big question of whether or not any of that was actually stolen.

Late Monday evening we found a truck with US government tags still parked in the Marriott’s lot.  We are waiting to find out if that is the original truck returned to the staff or a second vehicle.

So, is the equipment GONE, or was it in the truck they found?

My husband thinks that the GOP arranged this.  I don’t think they are nearly that clever or adventurous.
