Police: Thieves cut open fence to steal $40,000 generator
Thieves swiped a large generator valued at around $40,000 from a wastewater treatment plant in Scio Township sometime Tuesday night, police said.
Deputies were called to the 4500 block of West Huron River Drive Wednesday to investigate the theft, Washtenaw County Sheriff's Office deputies said in a release. The plant services the Loch Alpine neighborhood.
A full section of a chain link fence was cut open to get at the generator, police said. The thief or thieves then hooked the generator up to a vehicle and towed it away.
The generator is described as a Kohler 150kw with a tandem axle. It is green with “Scio Township” written on the sides near the top.
There are no suspects at this time. Police continue to investigate.
