UPDATE: Common crime at fair brings two women together
OKLAHOMA CITY – Two women met under strange circumstances: two different families are the victims of the same crime.
Jaime Trevino and her family went to the Oklahoma State Fair on Sunday.
After enjoying the day, they realized someone had stolen their maroon Ford F-250 pickup.
Trevino said, “We walked for an hour hoping maybe it wasn’t where we left it and we would find it. But we didn’t.”
Jessica Williams took her family to Disney on Ice the next day.
After the show, she found that someone drove away with her white Ford F-250 pickup.
At first, she says she thought her husband was playing a joke on her.
“He said ‘Where’s the truck?’ And I said ‘Wherever you parked it!’ And he said ‘I parked it right here.’ I said ‘I know, so where did you move it to?” Williams said.
Williams posted about her stolen truck on her business Facebook page, Emma’s Essentials.
Trevino commented, saying, “My F-250 was stolen Sunday in the middle of the day. Praying we both get ours back!”
The two women have been messaging ever since and finally met Thursday in Chickasaw.
Trevino said, “It’s kind of nice to have somebody to talk to and share the same experiences with them. Just to have someone to lean on.”.
Williams said, “We’re building a relationship here because like she said before, you know, we went through this experience together just a day apart. And there’s a reason why God put us together.”
Police say these two pickups are the only vehicles that have been reported stolen at the Oklahoma State Fair, so far.
The Ford F-250 pickup is the most stolen truck in the U.S.
