SEMINOLE -- When someone stole Mary Urquhart's truck from her driveway on Aug. 17, the person not only burdened her and her family but strained the Horses and the Handicapped program, run by the Kiwanis Club of Seminole.

The truck, a dark blue 1995 Dodge Ram Charger valued at about $15,000, was taken early Aug. 17 from her driveway on 82nd Avenue N and 125th Street, Urquhart reported. It was confirmed by the Pinellas County Sheriff's Office.

Inside the truck were notebooks containing health and vaccination information on the 10 horses Urquhart, 68, keeps for the Horses and the Handicapped program at a barn she rents on Vonn Road in Largo.

The retired Largo Middle School science teacher used the truck to transport horses for programs in which her Seminole Riders were involved. She also picked up hay and feed with the truck.
