MILTON, Ga. – Several people were observed via hidden camera taking a $2,500 wood splitter from an abandoned property July 13.
A neighbor told police he saw a gate broken down on an abandoned property on Mountain Road. Feeling this was suspicious, the neighbor installed a hunting trail camera on a nearby tree. A few days later, July 12, the camera picked up two people – a man in camouflage gear and a woman in jeans and a T-shirt – enter the property then leave. The next day, the camo man returned with another man carrying an air compressor at 3:55 a.m. Ten minutes later, the men were seen carting a wheel-mounted wood splitter out of the property. The splitter had flat tires, necessitating the air compressor.
