The Smallwood’s also reported that the gate to the business had been damaged, which was due to the truck being driven through it.
 
On April 10th, the McCracken County Sheriff’s department received information that Robert J. Middleton, 38, had possibly taken the truck from his former employer (West KY Painting) and left it at a truck stop in Biloxi, Mississippi.
