PORTLAND, OR (KPTV) -

FOX 12's Most Wanted stole a heating and cooling van while the worker was inside a home.

Thankfully, that van is back with the company but some of their tools are gone.

The theft happened around 11 a.m. off of Southeast Holgate and 122nd Avenue. 

A worker from A-TEMP Heating and Cooling was working inside a home, when he came back out to the truck to get some tools and the truck was gone.

The worker said he had only been inside for a moment, so the thieves had to act quick.

The company filed a police report and the van was found after a homeowner potted it in front of their house.

"It's a bit messy, but it's intact. I think it was pretty much a joyride, but all of the power tools are missing out of it, so they got something out of it," said Ron Friedrich, President of A-TEMP Heating and Cooling.

Friedrich said he's thankful for the people that saw the van and called police.
