THOMASVILLE, GA (WALB) -

Thomasville police need your help locating a $4,000 mortar mixer that was reported stolen from a construction site.

A red Whitman SX80 model was stolen from the new Publix construction site off of Highway 19.

Officers said it could have happened between June 11th and July 9th.

They said the amount of cars and workers coming in and out of the site makes this a difficult case to solve.

“Construction trucks, pickup trucks, things of that nature that are capable of pulling this type of equipment, they could hook up to it very easily. They could plug it in and ride right out of there, and no one would suspect one thing,” said Lt. Maurice Holmes.

Police said they haven't had many cases of theft from construction sites lately, but warn workers to keep all equipment locked up.
