50,000-pound equipment stolen from construction site

Staff reports

Police are on the lookout for an extremely large piece of equipment weighing about 50,000 pounds that was stolen from a Osage Beach, Mo., construction site nearly a week ago.

The equipment was listed as a yellow 1996 Komatsu PC220LC-6.  It operates on tracks, not wheels, and has large grapples on the arm.

The equipment was reported stolen Monday, Oct. 6. It apparently disappeared from the site where crews have been working to make room for the Osage Beach expressway project.

The 50,000-pound piece of equipment would have required a semi-style truck with flatbed trailer to be able to move it from the job site.
