Garner, N.C. — A dump truck full of logs carrying a trailer and a Bobcat excavation machine were stolen Thursday outside a restaurant in Garner, the owner of a local tree service said Friday.
Tim Robbins, owner of Arbormax Tree Service, said he was inside the Buffalo Wild Wings on Shenstone Lane about 10:45 p.m. when his truck was taken from the parking lot.
Robbins, who said his company had responded to dozens of calls Thursday after powerful storms knocked down trees and power lines across the area, estimated the equipment was worth about $100,000.
Garner police said the 2004 dump truck has a white cab and black bed. The Sunguard trailer was carrying a white and green Bobcat.
Anyone who sees the dump truck should call the Garner Police Department at 919-772-8810.
