INCIDENT: PC496- Possession of Stolen Property/ Property Recovery

SUSPECT(S): Unknown


On Tuesday, July 9, 2019, Deputies from the Sheriff’s Rural Crime Task Force received information of a stolen concrete tamper being sold on the Offer Up App. The equipment was stolen from Sunstate Equipment Rentals in Colton in late April 2019. Deputy Oakleaf obtained information on the location of the stolen equipment and met with the seller in Highland. Deputy Oakleaf inspected the concrete tamper and determined it to belong to Sunstate Equipment Rentals. The person selling the concrete tamper had purchased it at a low price with the intent to re-sell the item. The concrete tamper valued at $3400.00 was returned to Sunstate rentals.

Other equipment including chainsaws and concrete power hammers were stolen during the theft from the rental company. Anyone with information related to this theft or equipment is urged to contact the Sheriff’s Rural Crime Task Force or WE-TIP Hotline.
