Stolen equipment valued at more than $21K

Express Staff Writer

The Ketchum Police Department is investigating the theft of two snowmobiles and a trailer sometime Saturday night or Sunday morning from a fenced area on Lewis Street in the city's light-industrial area.

Police spokeswoman Kim Rogers said the equipment was valued at more than $21,000. The theft was reported just after 8 a.m. Sunday.

"They'd cut the chain on the lock on the chain link fence," she said.

The culprits then apparently hooked onto the trailer and drove away.

Rogers said the snowmobiles had been used on Saturday and the owners of the machines reported that "everything was locked up."
