Nearly 200,000 eggs, semi stolen in Lee County, Florida

(WBBH) Florida police are searching for an 80-foot semi-truck carrying nearly 200,000 eggs.

The rig was stolen over the weekend from the parking lot of a Lee County gas station.

For the truck driver and his family, this is no laughing matter.

"It's fairly new. It's not a run down, worn out, piece of equipment. It is worth a lot of money," said Angie Carlisle, the driver's wife. "What they took was part of our livelihood, and the folks that run this company, their livelihood."

Carlisle says Monday morning someone said they spotted the truck at a toll way on Alligator Alley.
