Lufkin authorities search for equipment thieves
LUFKIN — Crime Stoppers of Lufkin wants your help identifying the suspects who stole equipment and off-road vehicles from a business located just north of Lufkin on Highway 59.
Just after midnight on Monday, December 12, 2011, the suspects stole a red- and black-in-color generator, an orange-in-color four-wheeler, an orange-in-color utility trailer with rear loading ramp, and two side-by-side utility trailers, one with orange-in-color bodywork and one with camouflage-design bodywork. The property stolen has an approximate value of $50,000.
Investigators believe that the suspects used two vehicles to remove the equipment from the business; a U-Haul box truck and a pickup truck. Security cameras at the business captured images of both vehicles parked at and near the business at the time the theft occurred. The pickup truck appears to be a newer model, four-door, four-wheel-drive Ford Super Duty with dual rear wheels, an aftermarket front bumper with brushguard, and tube-style side steps.
