Default first time I seen this

I went to do a bid today for mulch, clean up, junk removal, and a walkway. I notice a dump truck in the driveway and asked about it. I guess the guy that was doing the concrete patio just up and left, tools, truck, and all. Its been sitting there for months with the keys in it. Have you ever seen something like this?

At about day number three, I'd have put it in neutral and let it roll down the street.

That's crazy. Maybe he's in prison.

She mentioned immigration I thought he mightve been arrested. Either way part of the job is throwing his ladders away(onto my truck). I could offer to move it but it might open up a can of worms.

Not having any luck finding info to claim the truck in my ****ty state. I only seen it for tow truck drivers. The property owners could charge him storage fees forcing him to sell the truck to them but thats a PITA.

Yeah man it sounds like immigration. Seen that happen to a few brazilian dudes around here. People come here set up shop get busted or almost busted and vanish, leaving all their equipment behind. I was looking at this dump truck that was for sale down the road and couldn't get any info cause the guy was "out of town". After a year the thing just vanished.

I know in Pa the property owner has too make an attempt to contact the vehicle owner via certified or whatever, after no response then they must contact certified tower and they in turn can request a new title under abandonment and or salvage...The property owner can not just sell it or give it away....
