A: They are responsible for the truck, so you will want to ask them for the name of their insurance company. You will need to figure out what tools you had, brand name, model number, and pull the costs from online or if you have receipts make copies of them.

Was a complaint filed with the local police department? It's a theft, but it looks odd if no complaint is ever filed.
