Landscaping equipment stolen, totaling $17K



FORSYTH COUNTY, Ga. — Five work trucks were burglarized Aug. 14 at Gibbs Landscaping.

The manager called the sheriff’s office after he saw someone cut the fence at the entrance and broke into several work trucks that had locked key boxes on the back of the trucks.

The suspects stole handheld landscaping tools including leaf blowers and trimmers, totaling more than $17,000.

It’s believed the suspects used a wheelbarrow and a set of hand trucks to move the equipment to the exit.

Videos of the incident are in the process of being obtained. Another landscaping company had their fence cut as well.
