Talk about the ultimate joy ride.

A local NBC affiliate in Richmond, Virginia reports that thieves stole a truck carrying hundreds of thousands of dollars worth of equipment that travels with President Obama, including his Teleprompters.

Officials recovered the truck on Monday. Here’s the NBC 12 breakdown of the caper:

When you see President Obama speak, there is a  pretty typical setup including the presidential seal on a podium, the  see-thru Teleprompter and a portable sound system.

Thieves saw the truck carrying that equipment and couldn’t resist the target.

We’re told the truck was parked at the  Virginia Center Commons Courtyard Marriott in advance on Wednesday’s  presidential visit to Chesterfield.

Sources said inside that vehicle was about $200,000 worth of sound equipment, several podiums and presidential seals, behind which only the President himself can stand.

They told NBC12 around 12:30 Monday afternoon  that truck was recovered in the parking lot of the Holiday Inn Express  near the airport and hotel staff confirm police activity.
