    Within the past month, 6 Landscapers in the Central CT area have been getting robbed. They have stolen everything from full size caterpillar backhoe to hydroseeder, trucks with enclosed mowing trailer fully loaded, a bobcat with a snow blower attachment, wheelbarrows, and all kinds of small stuff. Some of the places that they robbed, they have come back to twice. The police are on heightened alert and nothing seems to be able to stop them. The irony of it is they have no fear of being caught. They have driven through fences to get what they want, broken into shops, loaded the trucks with only good stuff, and stole the truck as well. Any help would be greatly appreciated.:realmad::realmad:

    Can I get more specifics on the CAT backhoe? And possibly a description of the trucks that were stolen?

    Serial Numbers would be nice as well if they're available.
