CUMMING, Ga. — Several pallets of shingles were delivered to a home under construction, but they were stolen before they got installed, according to a Forsyth County Sheriff’s incident report.
A contractor working in the Avonleigh subdivision told deputies he last saw the six pallets of shingles when he left the property in the 2000 block of Cahaba Court at about 5:30 p.m. Aug. 11.
The next morning, he said the pallets were still there, but the shingles were gone.
The thief who took the shingles tore down the silt fence bordering the property and drove a truck over the curb.
Tire tracks led up to the empty, muddy footprint-covered pallets.
The contractor said the shingles were valued at $7,000.
