Local business catches thieves on tape

LUBBOCK, TX (KCBD) - A local business wants your help to catch a thief. A week ago someone stole supplies to build a fence from All-State Distributors. They caught the act on a security camera, and they hope that tape will help bring the culprit to justice.

"As soon as I turned the lock, the chain just kind of fell off, and I said to the guys, we've been hit," said All-State Distributor's general manager, David Estrada. When Estrada realized someone broke into his business he immediately took inventory to figure out what they took. It was about $600 of fencing supplies, but the burglary will cost the business more than $600 once they add new security measures to the storage yard. "We have to spend so much to get everything secured," Estrada said. 

Estrada went back and checked the security tape, which caught the act on film. A charcoal truck drove up to the yard just after noon last Saturday. About 10 minutes later, the same truck drove away with a little extra cargo. The same truck came back half an hour later and took another load. Whoever was in the truck stole 18 fence panels, and 10 cedar posts, which is just enough for a residential fence.

All-State Distributors reported the incident to the Lubbock Police Department, and hope they catch whoever broke into their facility. "We want to send a message that we're not going to accept it. We're going to prosecute to the fullest, whatever the law lets us, and we can't afford to give money away as anybody can't in these times," said Estrada. 

All-State Distributors is offering $100 reward to anyone with information that helps break the case. Their number is 744-5400.
