Thieves steal welding truck that allowed Denver man to support his family

DENVER -- Jesus Alfaro had big dreams when he started his business, Imperial Welding and Repair, two years ago.

Things were going well until he woke up to the sound of one of his two welding trucks being stolen at approximately 6 a.m. on Tuesday from his Green Valley Ranch home.

“I was upstairs and then I heard my truck start," Alfaro said.

He said $120,000 worth of tools were inside the truck.

After pictures of the blue 2007 Dodge 3500 were posted on Facebook, Alfar received leads indicating the truck was seen near Interstate 270 and Vasquez Boulevard.

Paperwork he kept in the truck was found in a lot near Federal Boulevard and West 80th Avenue.

Alfar needs welding tools to finish jobs he has lined up in order to support his wife and two children.

“It is hard for me, but I have to try and make it one way or another," he said.

Anyone with information is asked to call the Denver Police Department or through Imperial Welding and Repair.
