Puget Sound Auto Theft Task Force searching for thief in Dodge Ram pickup who stole portable light tower in Tacoma


TACOMA -- The Puget Sound Auto Theft Task Force is asking for the public's help to find a portable light tower stolen early this morning from a Integrity Construction Group's shop at 45th and S. Adams St. in Tacoma.

A thief seen on surveillance video driving a silver 1995 to 2002 Dodge Ram extended cab pickup.

"We have pretty good cameras around the front and sides of our property. The back side we usually don't have issues back there. We just happened to have the light tower back there locked up but they cut the lock on it," said owner Josh Harris.

He says the light tower is valued at $3500 to $4000. The tower is white and has no distinguishing marks on it.

"We use this tower not only for construction for us but also for activities we do in the community like football or trunk or treat events

where  we need lighting," said Harris.
