  Email   Print

The Rutherford County Highway Department was the victim of a sizable theft in Murfreesboro. Unknown persons made their way into a locked gated lot on Rutledge way and helped themselves to street signs and even a county owned truck.

The thief (or thieves) found the keys to the utility truck in the console of the vehicle and drove it through a rear fence. It would appear as if the truck fled the crime scene by way of a neighboring parking lot on Ester Lane. Here’s where the street signs come into play. The signs along with heavy duty highway department equipment were in the back of the truck. County officials say that over $10,000 worth of tools, signs and equipment were in the truck.

The chain link fence the white Chevy truck drove through was damaged in the theft. A police report shows the fence was worth about $5,000.


A nearby business on Ester Lane reported a sizable theft of metal on the same evening of the truck theft. In that case, the subject cut open a fence and made off with an unknown amount of scrap metal. The subject who stole the metal somehow cut their self while in the process of the theft, blood was found on the ground in the area of the metal.
