INDIANAPOLIS — Days after being stolen, Servant’s Heart of Indy says its newest box truck has been recovered but has major damage.

The truck was stolen Friday and was just purchased a month ago.

Early Tuesday morning, Beech Grove Police got a tip that "DeWhite" was found.

Executive Director Bill Boone says it appears someone was living inside the truck and the catalytic converter was stolen.

"We do forgive the people that had taken our truck because I know things times are tough and I mean the fact they were living in the truck just shows me how tough times are to steal something you have to use for a dwelling," Boone said.

Rustic Root restaurant is doing a fundraiser for the organization Thursday from 9 a.m. - 4 p.m. Servant's Heart of Indy says 100% of the proceeds will be donated to them and Hanna's Wrecker Service will match the amount raised.

Two donors also gave $500 and $1,000 checks Tuesday to Servant's Heart.
