“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. Jesse O’Donaghey. “Investigators are now releasing images taken from that video surveillance footage in an effort to identify their suspects, and recover the stolen property.”

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.
