Thieves in the Annapolis region were bold enough to not just try stealing merchandise from a Shopping Center, but to instead take an entire generator. The generator was stolen from a contractor who had the generator inside of a trailer that was located behind the shopping center in Annapolis.
According to the contractor, he had used the generator the previous Monday. After the contractor finished using the generator, it was stored inside of a trailer in an alleyway located behind the Shopping Center.
The contractor first noticed the generator theft two days later on Wednesday. The contractor admitted to the police that it’s possible that the trailer was left unlocked, but this isn’t for certain.
The generator that was stolen was a Subaru SGX 3500 with a yellowish color. This generator is worth somewhere in the vicinity of $1000. Considering the fact that this generator type is fairly conspicuous, it’s likely that the only way the thieves got away with it without immediate detection was because the generator was in a trailer in a back alley where there were no opportunities for witnesses.
As of March 26, 2015, the police have released no information about suspects or leads.
