If you have a summer home, it might be good to have someone check on it once in a while. From the Leader:
An aluminum wheelchair ramp, two water heaters, a lawn mower and other items were recently stolen from a summer home…in Dittmer… The burglary happened between August 1, 2011 and April 23.
That’s a window of almost eight months. The theft must have been a large undertaking, as the heating/AC, many sheets of drywall and plywood, and four rolls of insulation were taken.
UPDATE: Another big theft took place in De Soto “between March 26 and April 26” at a vacant home, according to the May 24 Leader.
