Albany -- Albany Police are investigating a reported theft of more than $60, 000 worth of construction equipment.

The equipment was reportedly stolen from a lot behind Majors Flooring Covering on Moultrie Road. Cornelia Stence said her John Deere bulldozer, diesel blower, water tank, scaffolding, posts, and scrap metal were all taken.

Police questioned two suspects who took the equipment. They told Investigators they were given written permission to remove the equipment, but the person who gave the permission was not the equipment owner.

So far no charges have been filed, and the suspects have been released.
