• Someone apparently stole a front-end loader from Ready-Mix Concrete Company, but didn’t get far. The CSX railroad company found the $25,000 machine tipped over on the railway just 500 feet from the back of Ready-Mix’s facility at 331 Reedy Creek Road. It was easy to track the 13-ton vehicle back to Ready-Mix thanks to the track it left. Police have made no arrests in the case; they found no signs of tampering with the machine or of a break-in attempt at the site. The incident occurred sometime before Saturday morning.
• Police received a report of a forced-entry burglary on the 400 block of Panorama View Loop that occurred between April 28 and May 4.
