Oh my Lord!  Someone must've had their eye on this for some time.  To get up the nerve to steal a pricey piece of machinery like this takes a lot!  I feel bad when I realize I've pocketed someone else's pen.  This operation probably took some planning and time.

In any case, the thief didn't just take the John Deere Skid Steer, but also took a 22-foot flatbed trailer.  My guess is, they needed the trailer to haul the machine.  Whatever.  If you see someone with this new piece on a construction site, please let the police know.  Call West Richland Police non-dispatch at 509-628-0333.

The items were taken from the front of a business in the 5000 block of West Van Giesen Street in West Richland, sometime over this past weekend.

Who would do such a thing?  Wouldn't it be nice if someone returned it?  I guess that's wishful thinking.  But, wouldn't it?
