NASHVILLE, GA (WALB) - A Nashville business owner was preparing to install surveillance cameras at his business Thursday after it was burglarized between 5 p.m. Tuesday night and 6:30 a.m. Wednesday morning.

The thief or thieves got away with nearly $10,000 worth of items and a pick up truck.

When WALB spoke to Nashville Tractor Owner Rickey Carter Thursday, he retraced his steps from Wednesday morning when he walked through the store taking inventory after realizing that the business had been broken into overnight.

"The gate was open the wrong way and I had assumed that somebody had already gotten here," said Carter.

Carter estimated that between $8,000 and $9,000 dollars worth of stuff was taken from inside the store. "This was stacked up along here with grease guns," Carter explained as he pointed to an empty space on a shelf in the store. "We've rearranged some of the tools, but some of the tools was gone. Then, we had go lights that were [also stolen]."

The thief or thieves also stole a couple of camo coolers and took cash and employees' personal items from the office and went outside and stole a red F-350 pick up with the words "Nashville Tractor" on the side in black letters.

Some boot prints were still visible on the ground Thursday morning from where the suspect or suspects went walking around as they stole the truck from where it was parked in the fenced in dirt lot behind the business.

Carter said because the police patrol the area frequently and the fact that Nashville is a small town, he never thought he needed surveillance cameras. But after the burglary, he changed his mind.

"As of Friday, we will have a surveillance system, camera system, put in," Carter pointed out.

If you have any information about the burglary, call Nashville Police at 229-686-6558.
