Police searching for suspects who stole equipment from Chesterfield construction site

CHESTERFIELD Co., (WRIC) — Police are trying to identify two men who allegedly stole equipment from a Chesterfield construction site on July 18.

Authorities say that at approximately 8:30 p.m.,  a white, four-door pickup truck pulled onto a construction site on Coyote Drive.

Two men who were in that truck loaded a Ridgid-brand pipe threading machine onto the back of the truck and left the site, police said.

The site supervisor, who watched the surveillance footage of the theft, did not recognize the truck as belonging to anyone on his site crew.

The victim told investigators that this pipe threader is commonly used with gas or irrigation pipes.
