For the second time in less than two years thieves have stolen a large amount of lawn equipment from the same company.
Around 6:00am Saturday, employees at Bobby Hardee Landscaping on Hardee Lane near Clayton arrived at work to find a padlock on a fence had been cut and a 2008 Ford F-350 truck, two flat bed trailers, two zero turn mowers, plus push mowers, blowers, edgers, weed eaters, sprayers and hand tools had been stolen. The property had a value of $64,483.90.
In December 2015, a work truck and trailer with two commercial zero turn mowers and other equipment from the same business was taken. The equipment was valued at approximately $61,000.
