The truck was parked at the Virginia Center Commons Courtyard Marriott near Richmond before the president’s scheduled Wednesday appearance in Chesterfield, the Richmond station reports. In addition to the teleprompter, $200,000 worth of audio equipment and presidential seals mounted on Obama’s podium were inside the stolen vehicle.
