Last Saturday morning (Dec. 12th) about 9:30 AM, a Troy-Bilt generator was stolen from a house under construction off St. Marks Church Road in Bessemer City. The generator was chained to a 4x4 post at the front porch, and the suspect used a grinder to cut the lock. A security camera got video of the truck that was used by the person who stole the generator. Police are asking for help from the public to identify the truck and a possible suspect in this case.
If you have any information regarding this case or recognize the truck, please contact Officer A. Franco with the Gaston County Police Department at 704-866-3320 or Crime Stoppers of Gaston County at 704-861-8000. Please do not comment information publicly.
