There have been countless thefts in the area this year where the perpetrator took the items to be recycled, but someone broke into a recycling center late last week and got away with over four thousand dollars worth of items.
The report from the Sheriff’s Office quotes Marsha McPherson of Transtar Recycling on Highway 1682 near the Pennyrile Parkway interchange as saying someone came on that property between Thursday evening at 5pm and Saturday morning at 8 and took a set of wheels and tires, a winch, two vehicle radios and four aluminum tool boxes.
Total value of the items is listed at $4,200 and no suspects are listed on the report.

One of the most rampant telephone scams in the country was recently attempted against a Cadiz resident.
Cadiz Police say they were contacted Friday about someone attempting the “grandparent scam” against a resident.
The grandparent scam is where someone calls an elderly person and says their grandchild is in need of help after falling into some type of trouble, usually while traveling outside of the country. Police say the reason given is usually that the child has been arrested in another country and money is needed to be wired in to post bail.
Police say residents should never wire money anywhere before first confirming the whereabouts of the grandchild in question and to report any such suspicious calls to law enforcement. The would-be victim in Cadiz called police and never sent any money to anyone. You can find a list of ongoing scams police know about at cadizpolice.com.
