Construction equipment located
NCSO deputies and detectives continue to locate, investigate and recover stolen construction type equipment across our county.
Both these pieces of equipment were located before the owners knew they had been stolen.
Yesterday the NCSO recovered a stolen Caterpillar Excavator that was located under the Chambers Creek Bridge on I45.
The excavator was valued at $90,000 and had been reported stolen from a construction site in Mansfield.
Today we recovered a stolen Yanmar Excavator that was located off SE 4060. The excavator was valued at over $48,000 and had been reported stolen from a construction site in Wilmer.
The NCSO has now recovered approximately a half million dollars worth of stolen construction type equipment within the past two months.
