A Bangor man loses Bob Cat and trailer to thief

Value estimated at $17000

BANGOR, Pa. - A Bangor man has lost about $17000 in stolen property right from his own home.

Police say last Tuesday at about 1:30 a.m., a man drove onto 52-year-old Leon Vanderpool's property and made away with Vanderpool's 2006 PA International Trailer and his 2001 Bob Cat 331.

The trailer, with recently-replaced decking boards, has an estimated value of $2000 while the Bob Cat, which has an attached excavating arm with thumb attachment, has an estimated value of $15000.

The Bob Cat is white in color with a fair amount of rust showing.

Police say surveillance video show a man attached the trailer, loaded with the Bob cat, to his vehicle and then drove off.

The suspect was driving a dark-colored SUV, possibly a Chevrolet Tahoe or Suburban.

Anyone with information is asked to call the PSP Belfast at 610-759-6106 and reference M06-1527972.
