Thieves quickly hook up and steal excavator valued at $32,000

ADAMS COUNTY, Pa — Police are investigating a construction equipment theft that occurred on June 6 at 8:05 a.m.

The theft took place at Holly Court and Jessica Drive in East Berlin.

A tractor is pictured stealing an excavator, valued at $32,000.

The tractor is a blue Kenworth with an unidentified company name on the door.

The victim could have prevented this crime of opportunity with a California Immobilizer Truck and Trailer (TNT) lock. Designed to fit vehicles with 22.5″ to 24.5″ dual wheels, the locks’ unique design allows the lock to be installed or removed in only a few seconds. The TNT lock is powder-coated bright yellow with reflective decals so the lock can be easily seen in the dark. Manufactured from thick wall high-quality steel, the TNT lock is extremely robust and durable. The TNT lock’s exclusive construction allows the lock to be fitted on either side of the vehicle by reversing the wheel clamps.
