The borough offered a reward on Friday to anyone who can help police find who stole 75 tons of rock salt from a public works garage as the December blizzard descended upon the area. Department of Public Works Superintendent Jim McCabe noticed half of the stockpile missing from a cone-shaped storage shed on Disposal Road as the blizzard of Dec. 26 was just getting started, Police Capt. John Hearn said. McCabe valued the missing salt at $4,800 based upon the $62-per-ton price at which it was bought, Hearn said. Detectives could not find any surveillance cameras or witnesses. The theft had to involve at least one large dump truck, but it was unclear exactly how the haul took place, he said. “Whoever took it probably used it,” he said. The theft occurred sometime between Dec. 23 and Dec. 26. Officials are keeping the amount of the reward a secret because they “don’t want people calling just for the money,” said Thom Ammirato, a borough spokesman. They’re urging anyone with information about the heist to call Borough Administrator Terence Wall at 201-991-6060. Source :animalgod: nuff said.
