THEFTS OF HEAVY MACHINERY AND FUEL
Construction sites and businesses targeted
(HAWKESBURY, ON) – The Hawkesbury Ontario Provincial Police (OPP) is investigating a series of thefts of heavy machinery, fuel, trailers and tools reported within the past two weeks.
These incidents have occurred at construction sites and construction businesses in our area. Heavy machinery such as excavator, bulldozer, truck and trailer, have been targeted.
The investigation revealed that some of the places victimized were at risk. The Hawkesbury OPP wishes to remind you that everyone has a role in crime prevention and in reducing the potentials of criminal acts.

Owners are advised to be particularly vigilant when leaving their equipment at construction sites or even on private properties. Extra precautionary measures should be considered such as; locking the fuel cap, the cabin, securing equipment and tools and of course, leaving machinery in well-lit area, preferably visible to motorists and neighbours. The use of hunting cameras installed in proximity could assist police in a theft
