What’s next? Finding Air Force One up on blocks?

From NBC12:

HENRICO, VA (WWBT) – NBC12 has uncovered one of those stories that makes you think: “How in the world does that happen?!” A truck filled with President Obama’s podiums and audio equipment was stolen in Henrico just days before his visit to Chesterfield.

We confirmed an investigation with the U.S. Defense Department. There are still a lot of questions. The biggest one being did the thieves intentionally target the President’s truck or did they take advantage of a crime of opportunity and give a big “uh-oh” when they saw what was inside.

When you see President Obama speak, there is a pretty typical setup including the presidential seal on a podium, the see-thru Teleprompter and a portable sound system.

Thieves saw the truck carrying that equipment and couldn’t resist the target.

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.

With the Democrat convention less than a year away, the White House is breathing a sigh of relief that the fake Greek columns weren’t also on the truck.

According to the story, the truck was later recovered. At this time, nothing about the teleprompter thief or thieves is known, other than that police are on the lookout for anybody who can’t stop saying “pass this jobs bill”:

This isn’t the first time TOTUS has been swiped.

It’s possible the presidential seal wasn’t stolen, but rather ran away. It has a history of trying to escape.

Update: This ransom note was just received. It’s starting to smell like an “inside job” if you ask me:

Update II: Iowahawk has TOTUS’s list of demands.
