Reward offered after farm vehicles stolen in Pitt County

Posted: Updated:
GREENVILLE, N.C. - There’s a big reward for stolen equipment.
    
More than $100,000 worth of machinery from a farm in Pitt County was stolen last week.

Now, the owner and Crime Stoppers are teaming up to offer up to a $10,000 reward.
    
W.C. Moore Farms had a truck, trailer and bull-dozer stolen from farm property on NC 11 last Monday.
    
Detective Shane Guthrie says stolen equipment of this value and capacity doesn't happen often.

"Something as large as a Caterpillar, I would think, the person had a buyer somewhere,” said Shane Guthrie, Detective, Pitt Co. Sheriff's Office. “So you get a really good deal on a $70,000 bulldozer, the person probably knows it's stolen. That's the downside to it."

The stolen vehicles were identified as follows: 1992 Peterbilt, red, $20,000.00;  1969 Fontaine trailer, $12,000;  and unknown year, Caterpillar brand, bull dozer, $70,000.

If you know anything about the incident, call Crime Stoppers.
