A stolen Lowell, Mass., tow truck was found floating down the Merrimack River Tuesday night, May 3, according to a news report.

Two boaters out for a night cruise spotted the truck while pushing off from the boat launch.

The tow truck was stolen from Lowell Fleet Towing last Tuesday, April 26. The owner thinks the thieves got scared, ripped out the GPS and sank the vehicle, the report states.

Fire crews spent a couple of hours navigating around and helping to put out a line to get the truck out of the water. Officials say they have an idea of who could be responsible and will continue their investigation.
