DES MOINES, Iowa (AP) -

Police have pulled an empty flatbed truck found submerged in Gray's Lake and say it was reported stolen from a Des Moines business where a fire also occurred.

The Des Moines Register reports someone reported a vehicle in the lake a little after 9 a.m. Friday. A dive team was called and checked the truck, and it then was pulled out of the lake by a tow truck.

Police say the truck was reported stolen from Accurate Hydraulics and Machine Services, where an apparent arson fire occurred early Friday.

Firefighters quickly extinguished the fire. They found a note demanding that next time the business should fix something right.
