Dougherty County-- Nearly $32,000 worth of steel was stolen from a Dougherty County construction site. The thieves showed up with a tractor trailer truck and fork lift to load the tons of metal sheets. They were taken from a warehouse building project at the corner of Clarke Avenue and Pine Bluff Road sometime over the weekend.

Investigators are sure the thieves know the construction business. "It appears everything has been taken to build some type of building," said Dougherty Co. Police Lt. Dennis Dawson. "We have placed a lookout throughout Southwest Georgia for the building materials and a possible description of a vehicle maybe used to take these items."

250 sheets of Metal siding, three boxes of fasteners, bottom rails and 293 galvanized roofing sheets were stolen. A steel rolling door was stolen from the construction site earlier this month. Steel Building Construction Incorporated of Valdosta owns the stolen building materials.
