PROSPECT — Police continue to investigate a major theft that occurred between Jan. 11 and 13 at the site of the future Prospect Elementary School that is under construction.

Resident Trooper Matthew Comeau on Wednesday said police have been able to obtain video stills of a suspect vehicle in the incident. The images show an older model, possibly Ford F250, green pickup truck that is pulling a dual axle trailer with a white tank on it, he said.

According to state police in a release, at least two people unlocked a gate and drove onto a construction site at 75 New Haven Road, Route 69, and stole several items. The stolen items include an 1,800-watt generator and a 2011 Polaris Sportsman quad with an Ashtech Z GPS unit mounted on the front. The thieves also are believed to have siphoned about 800 gallons worth of red-dyed diesel fuel from several machines, police said.

Anyone with information can call the Prospect Resident Trooper’s Office at (203) 758-6150 or Troop I in Bethany at (203) 393-4200.
