OAKLAND PARK, Fla. – The Broward Sheriff's Office is searching for two men who they said stole a Ford F-250 in Oakland Park and then used the pickup truck to steal a travel trailer that was parked a block away.

The pickup truck was reported stolen Nov. 14 from the 4800 block of Northeast 11th Avenue.

Newly released surveillance video shows two thieves driving a newer-model white SUV past the blue 2003 Ford F-250.

Deputies said the thieves stole the truck, which had a Smith & Wesson M&P Bodyguard .380 pistol inside.

The men drove the truck a block away to 12th Avenue, hitched a 2016 Cherokee Grey Wolf travel trailer to the truck and drove away, deputies said.
