Target for thieves: Dickinson police seeing construction site theft of tools, trailers and even heavy equipment
Periodically, the Dickinson Police Department will receive a report of a theft from a construction site. Often, a large piece of expensive specialized equipment will disappear or, in a recent case, a whole trailer full of supplies.
These thefts are often perpetrated by individuals wishing to sell the valuable equipment and are sometimes employees, Detective Terry Oestreich said. The thieves are stealing the equipment to sell, and not for their personal use.
