Equipment stolen at PTC storage facility

Peachtree City Police are investigating the theft of more than $5,000 in lawn equipment stolen in the early morning hours May 11 from Citadel Storage on Dividend Drive. A video surveillance camera at the location showed a male wearing tan pants and a hoodie remove the equipment from two of the four entered trailers after the locks had been cut.

The surveillance camera showed a male entering the area just before 4 a.m. on May 11, according to police reports. The man cut the locks on four enclosed trailers and removed items from two of them. One of the trailers contained a riding mower, weed-eater, edger, two hedge trimmers and a backpack blower.

The other trailer from which equipment was removed contained an electric saw, according to reports. The total value of the equipment was estimated at approximately $5,000, reports said.

The man was wearing tan pants and a dark hoodie. At one point he cut a hole in the fence and began to drag another trailer containing some of the items to the fence where he exited the property. The man also drove the riding mower through the fence opening. The property manager subsequently found the empty trailer in a location outside the fenced area.

Anyone with information pertaining to the thefts is asked to contact Peachtree City Police at 770-487-8866.

They must have taken the equipment to start a lawn mowing company and since a new company needs new customers - just ask for bids from lawn mowing companies to cut the grass at the police station. Then when the guy in the hoodie shows up with his equipment - case solved.

Don't say they are not that stupid. They did the crime in front of a camera, didn't they?

Live free or die!

Wonder if Southside Steve will call his mom now. "Steven James! They're robbin' your momma now!"

Time and time again The Citizen fails to describe a perp, they do not publish the full details of the individual or a picture from the surveillance video. Who should we be looking out for? The paper needs to do a better job reporter such matters

They did describe him---had a "hoodie" on! No face or posture! OK?

However I think it was Ted Kazinski, the UBIBOMBER! He had a "hoodie" on also. So be looking out for a "Hoodie."

Yes, the paper should do a better job "reporter" such matters!

Do you have a "hoodie?"
