Theft

THIS IS BOTH AN OPERATION AGAINST CRIME AND A PUBLIC SERVICE ANNOUNCEMENT.  IT ALL BEGAN AROUND JULY 26TH.  THE OWNER OF A CAMPER NOTICED THE BATTERY HAD BEEN STOLEN FROM THE UNIT.  AND THEN ANOTHER REPORT OF A STOLEN BATTERY.  AND ANOTHER.  SOON IT BECAME AN EPIDEMIC.

OVER THE COURSE OF LESS THAN TWO MONTHS MORE THAN 45 BATTERIES HAVE BEEN STOLEN FROM CAMPERS AND RV’S.  THE CULPRITS HAVE BEEN CUTTING THE BATTERY CABLES TO MAKE IT A QUICKER PROCESS AND HAVE BEEN TARGETTING ALL PARTS OF THE CITY.
