Fulton County Crimestopper 2012.11.14

Written by David Green.

Law enforcement authorities are investigating several recent break-ins.

Doors and windows were pried open to gain entrance to Tedrow United Methodist Church, Tedrow Mennonite Church, Pettisville Missionary Church, East Chesterfield Christian Church and North Dover United Methodist Church. However, nothing was reported stolen from any of the churches.

On Sept. 9, a homeowner on Munson Road in Swanton reported that two trucks were broken into between 8:30 and 10:30 a.m. Several items were taken including eight Stihl chain saws, a Husqvarna chain saw, a Husqvarna backpack leaf blower, three sets of 120-foot climbing ropes and several miscellaneous pulleys and climbing items. The value of the missing items is approximately $7,100.

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

    ART PARK—A design created by Poggemeyer Design Group shows a “pocket art park” in the green space south of the State Line Observer building. The proposal includes a 12-foot sculpture based on a design created by Morenci sixth grade student Klara Wesley through a school and library collaboration. A wooden band shell is located at the back of the lot. The Observer wall would be covered with a synthetic stucco material. City council members are considering ways to fund the estimated $125,000 project and perhaps tackling construction one step at a time.
