Trucks Stolen with $120,000 of Equipment

Criminals in Conyers, GA stole 4 trucks full of equipment that belonged to a local landscaping business. Surveillance video shows the trucks driving away from the Newton County company’s lot, each loaded with landscaping equipment totaling over $120,000.

The company’s president, Allen Clemons, says the crime left him scrambling to keep customers happy and was shocked this could happen. “It’s completely fenced in. It’s barbed wire. There are cameras everywhere. We have keys that are locked behind two doors, locked inside a box with an alarm system,” Clemons said. Unfortunately, Covington police say this was not enough to stop the organized heist. “Whoever they were, they had some kind of inside knowledge of the business…” said Justin Stott with the Covington Police Department.

“Never assume that it’s not going to happen to you, because being 30 years in the business, I’ve never [had] 4 trucks stolen at the same time,” Clemons said. The company president said they are offering a reward for information that leads to arrests in this case.
