Video: A Texas-based plumber gets the shock when his pickup ends up in Syria

Get this–a Texas-based plumber decided to trade his truck in for a new model. But little did he know that strangely, the car ended up overseas and in the hands of Syrian terrorists, who mounted a large machine gun to the bed to conduct some dirty work. And yes, he obviously has no connection with this strange and bizarre change of hands.

The story isn’t thorough, but it reads that Mark Oberholtzer of Mark-1 Plumbing traded his F250 in and it immediately went to auction. Some how, in the mix, it ended up in Syria, ultimately teaching the lesson that it’s probably smart to remove any labeling or advertising you posted on your vehicle before you get rid of it.

Interestingly, Oberholtzer has reportedly become a victim of threats and harassment. But if it could be any consolation fromĀ us, Oberholtzer is not at all related to Syrian terrorism.
