CROCKETT, TX (KTRE) - The Crockett Police Department is asking for help in identifying the suspects who cut a hole in a fence at a school campus and stole commercial riding lawn mower, a chainsaw, a pole saw, and an air compressor Thursday night or Friday morning.
According to a post on the Crocket Police Department Facebook page, CPD officers were dispatched out to the Crockett ISD campus (the old state school) Friday morning in regard to thefts that occurred in the overnight hours.
“During the overnight hours three subjects were seen on video surveillance cutting the fence and making entry into the property,” the post stated. “While on inside the property the subjects cut a larger hole further down in the fence and stole a Bad Boy Outlaw Commercial Zero Turn 72" Deck mower, 1 Stihl Chainsaw, 1 Stihl Pole Saw, and 1 Senco Pancake Air Compressor.”
The post stated that the suspects used a small, John Deere tractor that was also located at the property to pull the mower to a location behind the property where it is believed the mower and the other items were loaded onto a trailer.
Anyone with any information about the thefts is urged to call the Crockett Police Department at (936) 544-2021.
