$17K in lawn equipment stolen from business in Cumming


December 21, 2013
CUMMING, Ga. — Someone entered a business and stole about $17,600 in lawn and construction equipment, according to a Forsyth County Sheriff's incident report.

On Dec. 7, an employee of Forsyth Exterminating, 1107 Atlanta Highway, told deputies he arrived at work at 8 a.m. while two crews were getting their equipment ready.

The crew members told him their truck was open and their backpack blowers and weedeaters were missing.

The employee said he looked around and saw the $14,000 Bobcat and its trailer missing. The generator was taken from the outbuilding.

Deputies said all the entrances were not forced because they were left open.

When deputies asked the employee why the outbuilding and truck doors were unlocked, he said he didn't think they needed to be locked "because they were in Forsyth County."

    Forsyth county has become a hot bed overnight with this type of crime. From June to December, high dollar personal property has been stolen from many hard working folks. The crooks are literally pulling into cumming at around 3:00 am with tow trucks and driving off with lots of stuff. This crime fits the M.O. of several other crimes in the area where the current sheriffs staff has little or no leads. Voters need to remember this come election time. There needs to be more accountability from our county commissioner Pete Amos. Take a look at all the crimes that have happened in district 1 in the last 6 months. It was my experiance that he has no interest in following up or holding our sheriff department accountable.
