Two suspects are being sought in the burglary of a shop on the 4600 block of Highway 70 West Wednesday. The owner said an employee alerted him to the burglary earlier in the day.
Entry was made by removing the metal paneling into the bathroom of the building. The building appeared to be in disarray, with several vehicles having been moved to facilitate the burglary. Cumberland County deputies noticed tire tracks leading from the grass into the shop building. The suspects also attempted to pry open a safe, which was empty.
Items stolen include a drill with charger, drill press, weed eater, four chainsaws of varying lengths, a concrete saw, hand grinder, children’s four wheeler, a 4,000-watt generator, a pressure washer, a leaf blower, a Marlin 336 lever-action .35 Remington, a compound bow with arrows, a .50-caliber muzzleloader, miscellaneous ammunition, and various items of hunting apparel and equipment.
Total value of the items stolen is in excess of $6,400. An investigation is ongoing.
