Family-Owned Company Offering $7,500 Reward After Plumbing Equipment Stolen

A plumbing company is offering a $7,500 reward if someone can help them recover their stolen skid-steer loader or prosecute the thieves.

The device cost $70,000 and was stolen from a family business site.

Nearby surveillance video shows a truck pulling away from a job site at Harvard and 27th with C2 Plumbing’s skid steer loader.

“They went in with flashing lights so they looked cool, they didn’t look out of place, they weren’t nervous, they just walked in and acted like they had every right to be there and take some wasn’t theirs,” said Brandon Ramsey.

Ramsey said the skid steer loader was used on the construction site, but it is also used for so many other things, such as clearing brushes or moving dirt or gravel on their property.

“That thing was so handy and anyone who owns a skid steer loader will realize how damaging a loss can be to a small business,” he said.

Ramsey said several people were involved in the stealing, and he said he gets chills watching the video. He said they didn’t have insurance on it so it’s a huge loss both financially and on the job.

“It’s going to be about a $70,000 machine and for them to take that, what gives them the right to do that. I would never do it myself, so I just can’t understand that,” Ramsey said.

Ramsey said they have reported it to the police and he hopes someone will come forward so they can get it back.

“We’ve worked hard to get that equipment and pay it off, and it’s just really disturbing that someone comes and gets it, without asking,” Ramsey said.

They are offering a $7,500 reward. If you have any information, call 918-923-7272.
