Police are looking for someone who made off with about $102,500 in cables and gate posts from a hoist-and-crane company on the 8000 block of 185th Street, Tinley Park, police said.
Between 11:59 p.m. May 12 and 4:30 a.m. May 13, the thief or thieves made off with:
- 34 20-foot cables, each worth $1,000
- Two 400-foot cables, each worth $3,000
- 500 galvanized gate posts, each worth $125
As police found the mulch hadn’t been disturbed by someone dragging cables and each of the 400-foot cables weighs more than 300 pounds, police believe the thief or thieves drove into the yard, according to police reports.
