$200K Worth Of Equipment Stolen In Brazen Weld County Theft
The Weld County Sheriff's Office is trying to find out who stole around $200,000 worth of equipment from a location near Johnstown, Colo. earlier this week.
That's according to a post on the Weld County Sheriff's Office Facebook page.
According to the post, deputies were called to an oil and gas site in rural Weld County near Johnstown around 7:20 a.m. Monday on a report that someone had dumped some equipment there, causing about $5,000 worth of damage. Investigators determined that the equipment had been stolen around midnight from another business in the area.
Deputies looking into the case looked at several pieces of surveillance video taken at the time of the theft.
According to the post:
''The video shows about midnight a silver SUV with dark windows enter the business lot. Several minutes later the SUV leaves. It’s followed by a white 2007 Toter GMC 6500 truck and attached 40-foot goose neck trailer loaded with equipment. The suspects drove to the oil and gas site where they dumped part of the trailer’s load, opting to keep the larger ticket items.
In addition to the truck and the trailer, the suspects stole 400 feet of power cable, a 60-foot lightweight lubricator, a lubricator top sub adaptor and miscellaneous tools and chains. Among the items damaged when they were dumped at the oil and gas site were a blowout preventer and an air skid pressure control. The total value of the stolen and damaged property is estimated at $219,000.''
Anyone with information on the case is being asked to contact the Weld County Sheriff's Office at 970-356-4015.
