Property Thefts Add Up in Losses

web posted April 28, 2011

COUNTY – Although the recent rash of HVAC thefts from rural churches seems to have stopped, property thefts continue with over $3,000 in various items being reported stolen in the past week. From lawn tractors to fishing rods and reels, secured or not, thieves continue to take at will what does not belong to them.

A Ridge Road man in Johnston reported that someone entered his property during the night and stole a Black& Decker garden tiller, a Red Max back pack blower, a 51cc Husky chainsaw, and a brand new Polaroid portable DVD player. Some of the items were located in a shed and the others from a utility trailer parked in his yard.

The man was unable to provide serial numbers for any of the items, which were valued at $800.

A Merriwether man reported someone entering his property on the 100 block of Briggs Road and making off with his Husqvarna riding mower sometime between Sunday and Monday. The $2,000 mower has a 46" cutting deck and a 21 hp Kohler motor. The serial number provided for the mower is 96045002601 and a model number of 001668.

On Tuesday a Johnston man reported someone entered a shed at this Pond Lane home and made off with four Zebco road and reels and one open face rod and reel. A security camera was also torn down off the building during the theft. No serial numbers were provided. The fishing equipment was valued at $200.

All three cases are currently under investigation. Evidence was collected at one or more of the scene.
