Scrap Metal Thieves Steal Nearly $10K in Vehicle Parts, Scrap Metal

web posted January 24, 2014

COUNTY LINE A Rainbow Falls Road man called the Sheriff's Office after finding a large amount of vehicle parts missing from the property when he checked the location as a caretaker on Wednesday. The man told the deputy that when he checked the property around Christmas he noticed the house had been broken into and a few things were missing from the vehicles parked in the back, but did not report it because only "minor" things had been taken. That changed on his visit Wednesday.

The person or persons had stolen radiators from cars, trucks and even a dump truck as well as other vehicle parts including doors, hoods and tire rims valued at $3,800. Various scrap metal items also found stolen were valued at $5,000.

The deputy photographed the vehicles and was shown a path cut through an adjoining wooded area that led to a home nearby. A witness stated they saw the owner of that home trying to remove a tire from a rim until he spotter the man watching and stopped and went inside.

AN investigator was notified of the situation and all information from the report has been turned over for further investigation. The deputy was able to identify the neighbor where the path led, but no contact was made, according to a report.
