NEW YORK (CBSNewYork) — Police were asking the public Friday to help them find four or five persons of interest in the theft of a construction vehicle, a truck and a construction trailer from a Brooklyn site.
Around 8:30 p.m. this past Tuesday, the suspects broke the locks and the fence on a fenced-in lot at 420 Park Ave., in the northwest corner of Bedford-Stuyvesant, Brooklyn, police said.
They stole a 2005 JCB Excavator, Model JZ140; a 1986 Mack tractor, and a 1980 Rogers trailer, police said.
The Mack tractor had New York license plates 26208ME with a Maja Construction logo on the driver’s side, and the Rogers trailer had New York license plates BE15142, police said.
