Washington (CNN) – A U-Haul truck loaded with equipment for a Monday event featuring Vice President Joe Biden was stolen in Detroit Sunday, a spokesman for the U.S. Secret Service said.
"A U-Haul that we were utilizing was stolen at the Westin Hotel overnight," Ed Donovan told CNN.
Donovan would not specify what equipment was in the U-Haul at the time it was stolen, and added that the theft shouldn't affect the vice president's plans on Monday.
Biden is scheduled to speak at a Labor Day rally in downtown Detroit Monday and march in a parade organized by the Michigan AFL-CIO. Last year President Barack Obama spoke at the Motor City's Labor Day celebration.
CNN's Jonathan Helman contributed to this report.
In Detroit, what do you expect?
Gee, what a shame. Too bad Biden wasn't in it when it was stolen. Biden is #2 loser in the Obama administration.
Couldn't have happened to a better bigot.
Right, the economy is improving so much that Bidens equipment / truck gets stole. Better off than we were 4 years ago. lol.
This story speaks for itself, but I guess it is OK as Obama (and Biden) have been stealing from the rest of the country for the people of Detroit and their ilk
You have to got to be kidding right? I think this pretty much sums up the last four years.
A U-Haul stolen in Detroit! Never heard of such a thing!
Perhaps if he had used chains . . . .
Boy that secret service is batting a thousand lately.
I bet those were some disappointed thieves.
The U-Haul wasn't stolen, it was just borrowed by some fun-loving Detroiters.
Oh no! His big shoes, his squirting flower, his selzer bottle, his bicycle horn and that funny little car he and the other clowns ride in, All Missing!!!!
Obama sold it for campaign money :)
Biden doesn't need any equipment. Just give him a podium, and Sir Gaffelot will do the rest.
Worth less than zero when these guys try to fence the goods.
Maybe the thieves were just making sure the wealthy paid their "fair share". The president says that's good. Or does the thief need a government middleman to make it okie dokie?
At least here in this small minor way, the progressives reaped the rewards of their policies which created the 3rd world city of modern Detroit.
I guess it wasn't chained up.
don't think of it as stealing. Think of it as re-distributing the wealth of equipment. It works for Obama and the Democrats.
Dear Joe: Check American Jewelry and Loan on Tuesday. You can buy your stuff back at a fair price.
I hope they didn't steal the U-Haul that carries all his gaffes.
Wow who is that dumb but that detriot so everything go
It was a teleprompter. But since ol joe never looks at it anyway it wont matter
Of the irony of it.
The Democratic party has asked that Biden's comic books and Rogaine please be returned from the U-haul.
Oh, oh! Mr. Bite Me's Gaff'e Preventer is missing again.
Bush did it!
