DELRAY BEACH, Fla. — Delray Beach police are looking for two men who stole a FedEx truck with more than 100 packages inside.

According to police, a FedEx driver had just delivered a package to a home on SW 15th Avenue around 10 a.m. Wednesday.

He noticed his rear-view camera was cloudy, so he went out to clean it. That's when the crooks jumped into the truck and took off, police said.

As the thieves drove away, the driver fell to the ground, scraping his elbow and knee.

Police said a GPS inside the truck revealed that the criminals drove the vehicle to Pompano Beach, where it was recovered with the help of the Broward Sheriff's Office.

Of the more than 100 packages on the truck, only 58 were recovered at the scene, according to police.

Anyone with information about this theft is asked to call Det. Mike Shiner with the Delray Beach Police Department at (561) 243-7828.
