Truck, trailer, tools reported stolen


A number of thefts were reported at the Sky Deck Motel and Gerard Builders last Thursday and Saturday.

Police reports show that Kenneth Haag, from Silverdale, Washington, reported that his 2006 Ford F-250 was taken while parked at the Sky Deck Motel. He told the officer that the keys were left in the pickup’s ignition, but the doors were locked.

Haag said he got up and had breakfast and that a friend who was with him advised him that his truck was missing.

At about the same time, Kevin Tipps told police that his vehicle had been prowled overnight.

Tipps said that he had left the keys in two vehicles. In the morning, the keys were gone, along with keys to his shop, Gerard Building Company. Tipps told police that he planned to change the locks to the shop.

Tipps was hit again on Saturday. He told the police that he arrived at his shop and noticed an equipment trailer filled with building tools was missing. He said the trailer had been parked across the street from the Gerard Building office in Electric City, to which the doors were locked. Tipps said he thought the trailer hitch had a lock on it also.

Police did not have suspects at the time.
