A Texas plumber was amazed when he got series of calls and threats after one of the truck from his company was seen being used by Islamic militants on Twitter. How did a truck from Texas end up with militants in another country? UPI reports
The truck was seen outfitted with anti-aircraft weaponry operated by members of the group Ansar al-Deen Front. The truck bore the logo and telephone number of Texas plumbing company Mark 1 owned by Mark Oberholtzer. Since the picture has gone up, their office phone has been ringing off the hook with some callers turning “ugly.”
AutoNation, the dealer who sold the vehicle, refused to disclose the details of the sale. Oberholtzer left the decal on the truck with the expectation they would remove it.
“They were supposed to have done it and it looks like they didn’t do it,” Oberholtzer told the Galveston Daily News. “How it ended up in Syria, I’ll never know.”
