The Christian County Sheriff’s Office investigated a nearly 7 thousand dollar burglary in north Christian County over the weekend.
A shop at 6320 Old Madisonville Road was broken into sometime early Friday morning when the perpetrator cut a lock to get inside.
The burglar took a welder, tool box full of tools, four sets of shop lights, two sets of trailer lights, four sets of wheels valued at $1,800, a $975 generator, a $560 racing helmet, a welding helmet and several other items totaling just under $7,000.
The shop owner’s wife—43-year old Laura Johnson of Donna Drive—told police that someone drove by in a black four door sedan and yelled “thank you” after deputies had cleared the scene Friday afternoon.
No suspects are listed on the report, but the case remains under investigation.
