Follow Daily Journal:



A truck, utility vehicle and other items were stolen from two construction sites at Camp Atterbury.

Police believe the thefts are related and have not ruled out more than two people being involved, Johnson County Sheriff’s Office Chief Deputy Randy Werden said. The thefts happened over the weekend and were reported Monday morning, according to reports from the Johnson County Sheriff’s Office.

The thefts happened at two construction sites. One site is in the 6200 block of Schoolhouse Road, where a rail spur, which is a track used to unload and load rail cars, is being built. The other construction site is in the 1100 block of Clark Street, where an operational readiness complex, which will include additional barracks and a dining hall, are being built, Maj. Lisa Kopczynski said.

A Barth Electric 2001 Ford F350 truck, a utility vehicle, $3,000 worth of copper wire and six five-gallon gas cans were stolen from the construction site at the operational readiness complex. Someone cut through a fence to get into the property, the report said.

The utility vehicle was loaded into a trailer stolen from Harmon Construction at the railroad site. The trailer included tools and was valued at $5,000. A yellow generator also was stolen from that site, according to the report.

A camera on one of the construction sites took a photo of two people in the utility vehicle at 5:30 p.m. Sunday. Anyone with information on the thefts can call the Johnson County Sheriff’s Office at 346-4615.
