Sheriff’s department looks for burglary suspects
The Marshall County Sheriff’s Department is investigating a burglary from a home construction site at Laws Hill.
Multiple items were taken sometime between 7:15 p.m. Sunday and 7:30 a.m. Monday.
“The suspects beat the lock off the gate at the entrance to the property,” said Maj. Kelly McMillen with the sheriff’s department, “and then the door to a storage building was pried open.”
Taken were two Honda four-wheelers, a John Deere zero-turn mower, a 6x10 utility trailer, light fixtures and fans still in the box, plus a variety of tools, including hand-saws, miter-saws, nail-guns and chargers.
McMillen said the suspects popped an ignition out of one of the four-wheelers, and it was found nearby.
“They basically took what they wanted,” he said. “It looks like multiple people were involved who used more than one trailer to haul the items from the property.”
A substantial reward is being offered for information leading to the arrest and conviction of those involved in the break-in. Anyone with information is urged to call investigators at the Marshall County Sheriff’s Department, 252-1311.
McMillen reminds Marshall County residents, that with the holidays approaching, it is the time of year when incidents such as this happen more often. He urges neighbors to watch for neighbors, be observant, and contact authorities about any suspicious activity whatsoever.
