FLORESVILLE -- Deputies from the Wilson County Sheriff’s Office continue to hunt for clues into a burglary at Ewald Tractor on U.S. 181 north of here. The incident is believed to have occurred during the overnight hours April 5-6.
Sheriff’s Cpl. Stephen Moore said more than $21,000 worth of Echo and Stihl brand equipment including pole saws, trimmers, edgers, blowers, and more were removed from the showroom after the suspects gained entry to the building by cutting a hole in a metal exterior wall. This was after cutting a hole into a fence the business shares with American Chinese Fireworks.
“They had to have cased the place,” Moore said.
