Muskogee police need help finding the truck involved in a road rage incident two weeks ago.

Police said they've talked to the owner of the truck, but believe someone is hiding it.

The road rage incident off of Highway 62 near Muskogee has many people outraged, including the Muskogee Police Department.

Officer Lincoln Anderson said, “If you get that mad while driving that you are going to ram another vehicle, you shouldn't be driving, you should be sitting in prison."

Police said it's a 2012 half-ton, four-door maroon Dodge pickup with damage to the front right corner. The truck has an Oklahoma tag 676HQN.

Police believe Aarick Caldwell from Fort Gibson owns the truck. Although police aren't sure if Caldwell was the driver, they do know the truck is registered to him.

After serving a search warrant at Caldwell’s home, his truck was nowhere to be found.

One neighbor said he hasn't seen the truck but knows Caldwell.

"He stands out in the yard by himself, which tells me he's not happy. He's not happy with something," the neighbor said. "They stay to themselves, they don't say much to people. And, other than that, he's never caused me no trouble."

The search warrant says Caldwell called in sick the day of the road rage incident and the day after. It says when he showed up to work he had "changed his appearance drastically by having his hair cut and shaving his beard."

A person he works with said he hasn't seen the truck recently.

Police say anyone caught in possession of the truck will go to jail for withholding evidence.

Officers are waiting on the district attorney to issue an arrest warrant.

If you have any information about the truck, call Muskogee Crime Stoppers at 918-682-COPS or 918-683-8000.
