Gutsy thieves broke into a police impound lot in Dodge County and stole an orange extended cab pickup truck, KAAL reports. The thieves cut a hole in a lot fence and drove the vehicle out and across a field, the station reports.

“They're brave enough to do anything if they're willing to cut through a fence at a police impound lot,” Dodge County Sheriff Jim Jensen told the station.

Police had impounded the pickup days before because investigators said it had been used in a felony theft, KAAL says.

The 2005 Ford F-350 truck is is a rust/orange color with license YAZ3835, officials said.
