Multiple thieves stole a moving truck, filled with the belongings of a UofL student this week.

That student, Kendall Williams, was spending the night at the La Quinta Inn & Suites on Old Henry road when the truck was taken.

“When it happens to you,” Williams said. “It’s kind of hard to keep your emotions in check, you are not thinking straight.”

Earlier that day, Williams was in Texas, renting the Budget moving truck that he would eventually drive to Louisville. He said he had to stay one night at the hotel before he could move into his new place. However, when he got up Wednesday morning, the truck was gone.

“My heart kind of sank,” Williams said. “You just get this sinking feeling in your chest, and you’re like what? It’s like, how did it just drive away?”

Williams said the hotel surveillance video showed someone stealing it from the parking lot.

“He [the suspect] opened it like he always had a key there, or like it was some universal key,” said Williams. “Mind you, the truck is locked. From there, it’s like he left the key in there, or whatever key he had, and he drives off in the car he brought. Minutes later, some other person walks up from right over there, hops in the truck and just drives off with it.”

He said they took all of his personal belongings in the process.

“A couple TVs, PS5, clothes, my vital records such as birth certificate, social security card and my passport,” Williams said.

Williams is working now to buy what he needs to be prepared to start classes and said he has not let what happened sour how he feels about his move to Louisville.

“I’m just trying to make the best of the situation,” Williams said. “I don’t want to start dental school off with the wrong mindset.”

LMPD has assigned a detective to the case.

The truck they are looking for is a 16-foot budget moving van, white, Ford model E-350 like this with Oklahoma license plates that read 2XE299.
