Law enforcement authorities are seeking information concerning recent thefts.

A snowmobile was stolen from the Big Buffalo Pawn Shop on U.S. 20-A in Delta during the night of Dec. 19 or early morning hours of Dec. 20. The snowmobile, a 2001 yellow Ski-Doo MXZ800, was locked to a wooden post by a cable which had been cut. The value of the snowmobile is unknown.

A Miller Construction tool trailer, parked at a site on County Road N west of County Road 16 in Lyons, was broken into between Nov. 26 and Dec. 1. Several items were taken from the locked trailer.

Missing items include an 8500 watt yellow generator, a Paslode orange nail gun, a Master Force compound mitre saw, aluminum walking stilts, two Quick Screw screw guns, a Bosch radio and battery charger, three 100-foot air hoses, two Milwaukee corded screwdrivers, a Makita circular saw, seven 100-foot yellow extension cords, a three-drawer tool box, miscellaneous drill bits, three leather nail pouches, and six Paslode battery packs. The total value of the missing items is $10,510.

Anyone with information concerning either crime should contact Fulton County Crime Stoppers at 800/255-1122. The call is confidential and anonymous. Informants may be eligible for a cash reward of up to $1,000.
