Middletown police are asking for help in finding the people who stole over $20,000 in landscaping equipment from the Remington Rand property at 180 Johnson Street.
According to police, the suspects pulled up to the property in a pick-up truck around 9:40 p.m. the night of July 30.
Security footage shows the driver, a heavyset man wearing a T-shirt and shorts, getting out of the truck and walking around the property. Later, he is seen towing a ten-foot trailer loaded with stolen machinery.
Security cameras also show a passenger getting out of the truck, but the images aren’t clear enough to distinguish the suspect.
The stolen equipment includes a Scag Zero Turn Tiger Cat, a Scag walk-behind 48-inch mower, three Echo string trimmers and a Premier TL 142 trailer.
According to police, the suspects’ truck has fog lights in the center of the front bumper, lights on the mirrors and across the top of the roof, a single break light at the rear of the cab and chrome steps on the sides of the truck.
Police are advising equipment dealers to be on the lookout for the stolen machinery.
They are asking anyone with information to contact the Middletown Police Department at 860-638-4000 or the Major Investigations Unit at 860-638-4140.
