Weatherford Police Department Crime of the Week, August 16, 2011

August 18, 2011 by Anonymous

Compactor

On Friday, August 12, 2011, at about 7:30am, Weatherford Police Officers were dispatched to the 100blk of S Main St in regards to a theft of city property. Upon arrival, officers met with a city employee who reported that on this date just shortly after 7am, a city employee was driving a city vehicle and had turned off of Eureka onto S Main St to go north. The employee was driving a flatbed truck that was transporting a Wacker brand ditch compactor, also referred to as a jumping jack. It is believed that the compactor fell out of the back of the truck as it accelerated onto S Main St. A citizen followed the employee to the 100 block of S Main (where City utilities employees were working) and informed them that a piece of equipment had fallen out of the bed of the City truck in the 800 block of S Main St.

Employees immediately drove back to the area but the piece of equipment was already gone and it is believed unknown person(s) stopped and removed the equipment from the road and intentionally kept the item.

The piece of equipment is further described as yellow and black and should have a City of Weatherford tag on it. The compactor does have a unique identifying number of S938878 and is valued at $3000.00. It is approximately 3 feet tall and could have easily been picked up and loaded by a single person.

The Weatherford Police Department is encouraging anyone with information on this crime or who may have seen something suspicious in this area during the given time frame to call the Weatherford Police Department at 817-598-4300 or Parker County Crime Stoppers at (817) 599-5555 or 1-800-942-STOP.

Up to a $1,000 reward will be paid for this information and you may remain anonymous.
