ANGELINA COUNTY, TX (KTRE) - The Angelina County Sheriff's Office is investigating the theft of a big electric generator from a water well site in the Bald Hill community.

According to Angelina Water Corporation GM Keith Weathers, the generator was stolen overnight Tuesday off of FM 326.

Weathers said a work crew went to the site Wednesday morning and found the gate lock was cut and the generator gone.

"It was provided by Texas Rural Water for emergency use," Weathers said. "We can move it to any water supply system as needed around the state. They have these generators positioned strategically."
