A delivery truck person is missing after two men impersonating police approached the driver, according to the LAPD. The driver and the truck, which was carrying "controlled substances" (most likely pharmaceuticals) are still outstanding. At 7:15 a.m., two men wearing black sweatshirts with "Police" written on the back apparently took the driver and truck from the parking lot of a Rite Aid at the corner of Riverside and Fulton in Sherman Oaks. At least one suspect fled in a black Honda Accord, last seen traveling westbound on Riverside Drive.

The suspects were described as two males, one white and one black, between the ages of 23 and 28. There was no description available of the victim.

The truck is described as white with a silver metal cab and "FOX" written on the side.

Update, 8:55 a.m: The victim was dropped off somewhere and contacted police, according to Ruben Villaescusa at Fox11 News.
