Tahoe towing thieves wanted for stealing $100,000 in equipment

- Two men in Indian Trail have been caught on camera over the past year stealing equipment totaling more than $100,000.

Investigators say the men use a white Tahoe to steal a camper from a public storage facility.

Investigators tell FOX 46 Charlotte what appears to be the same men, in the same Tahoe, returned on September 28 to snag two jet skis.

This past Monday another white Tahoe was seen towing away a stolen trailer from Comfort Masters in Indian Trail.

"At this point we just don't have a lot to go on," said Tony Underwood from the Union County Sheriff's Office.

All Union County investigators have so far is security video of the white Tahoe. That's why they say they need help from the public.

The camper and jet ski's were stolen from SafeHaven Storage off Old Charlotte Highway. A chain link fence and barbed wire surrounding the facility was no match for the suspects.

Investigators say the men had a very quick operation. They cut a hole in the fence, ran out front to their Tahoe, backed it up and grabbed whatever they could.

The suspects may have already had the tools necessary to break in. Union County Investigators believe the men may be tied to an excavator and trailer that were stolen from a business back in March.

"If you put it all together you are talking well over $100,000 worth of stolen merchandise," said Underwood.

Of all the stolen goods, three of the four were in secure locations behind a fence. Anyone with information should call the Union County Sheriff's Office.
