Marathon County Crime Stoppers: Plumbing trucks broken into

Posted:
WESTON, Wis. (WAOW) -

Five trucks at PGA Plumbing in Weston were broken into in mid-November and thieves got away with copper tubing and a generator, according to investigators.

The thefts occurred during the overnight hours of Nov. 16-17, and investigators estimate the loss at about $1,100, Marathon County Sheriff's Deputy Dale Ruechel said. The thieves cut off locks to gain access to the goods.

Because PGA Plumbing sits near state Highway 29, literally on the shoulder of the road, Ruechel hopes someone spotted the thieves at work.

"There is a lot of traffic here and maybe someone saw traffic or lights late at night that would be suspicious," Ruechel said.

If you have information about who may have committed this theft or have information on any other crimes, please contact Marathon County Crime Stoppers.
