One of the trucks — a white 2007 Ford F-250 short-bed truck with the New Mexico Gas Company logo on a door — has been recovered.

A white Ford 3-50 extended-bed truck with a white rack over the back window and no company logo is still reported stolen.

Customers are urged to ask anyone who claims to be a New Mexico Gas Company employee for their identification, as all employees have identification and wear uniforms.

Anyone with information about the stolen vehicles is encouraged to call the company at 1-888-664-2726 or nonemergency dispatch at 505-334-6622.
