New York State Police are looking for leads in connection with the theft of a piece of heavy duty construction equipment that cost hundreds of thousands of dollars to replace.
Troopers were alerted to the situation earlier this month, in the early morning hours on October 18. A crew working a jobsite in Schroon Lake, NY, told cops that when they left the site the night before, the concrete pumper truck was there. When they came back at around 6:00 a.m. the next day, it was gone.
The truck was taken from a job site along State Route 9 in the town of Schroon. It is a 2016 Mack Concrete Pumper Truck (photos included above and below) with a white cab and red flames that run along the truck cab doors. The vehicle's bed is gray, according to information released by New York State Police.
Anyone with information on the location of the pumper truck, or who may be responsible for stealing it you're asked to call New York State Police in Lewis at 518-873-2750.

The Top 25 Most Baffling UFO Sightings Reported in New York This Year
When residents of the Empire State spot something unexplainable in the skies, they report it to the National UFO Reporting Center. There's been about 80 new sightings so far in 2023 that raised a few hackles.
NUFORC does investigate what people saw to determine if they actually witnessed alien activity or something else. Oftentime, these reports turn out to be false flags. For example; someone from NYC reported seeing a strange, square-like object in the sky on July 22. They provided a photo to NUFORC, who then ruled the person saw an "advertising banner behind a private aircraft."
However, there have been several creepy reports that couldn't be brushed off with a logical explanation. And some of these reports had photo or video evidence attached.
