Joe Raedle/Getty Images(DETROIT) — A U-Haul truck carrying equipment for Vice President Joe Biden’s campaign event in Detroit Monday was stolen this weekend, ABC News confirmed with United States Secret Service.

Ed Donovan, a spokesman for the U.S. Secret Service, told ABC News the truck carrying equipment was stolen between late Saturday night and early Sunday morning at the Westin Hotel in Detroit. He would not specify what kind of equipment was in the truck.

The stolen U-Haul truck was recovered in Detroit Monday, but some if its contents are missing. It was found outside an apartment near Henry Ford Hospital in Detroit, Donovan told ABC News.

“Some of our property was there, but not all,” Donovan said. “We are still assessing.”

Biden’s speech at the AFL-CIO Labor Day rally in downtown Detroit continued as planned without the equipment.
