Leaf blowers stolen from landscaper’s truck
Someone stole two leaf blowers out of a man’s truck while he was cutting grass last week.
According to Cpl. James Spadola, a spokesman for the Newark Police Department, the theft occurred around noon on Aug. 19 in the 400 block of Elkton Road.
The victim told police his Stihl leaf blowers – worth $500 each – were taken from the back of his truck while he was cutting the grass at St. John’s Cemetery on the corner of West Park Place and Elkton Road.
Spadola said there is no surveillance footage of the incident and police do not have any suspects; however, officers are still investigating.
