Suspect Steals Street Sweeper

A suspect who stole an $18,000 street sweeper didn’t get very far.  A paving company doing work in Smithfield reported a street sweeper had been stolen Thursday where it had been parked along South 6th Street.

The sweeper was found in a nearby vacant lot where it had been abandoned after getting stuck in the mud.  It was not damaged.

Smithfield Police are investigating.
