“Police have since obtained video surveillance footage from the impacted business which shows the two masked suspects and the suspect vehicle, that appears to be a two-tone black Ford F350, 4×4, Super Duty, long box pickup truck,” states Cpl.

Investigators have learned that, a short time after 3:30 am on Oct. 24th, two masked suspects cut the pad lock to the gate of the fenced compound, where once inside they loaded and removed a number of hydraulic pieces of industrial equipment.
