Thieves have been busy hitting recreational vehicles and camper trailers stored in Sedgwick County.
In one of three incidents over the past week, someone broke into recreation vehicles at a storage facility and stole items valued at $8,030 and caused an estimated $2,250 in damage, the Sedgwick County Sheriff’s Office said Wednesday.
In that incident, someone cut a hole in a security fence around a storage facility near 10500 W. 119th St. South, forced his way into three RVs and stole electronics, a handgun and furniture, the Sheriff’s Office said.
The thefts occurred between 6 p.m. Saturday and 1 p.m. Monday.
A second incident occurred between 10 p.m. Friday and 8 a.m. Saturday, the office said, when someone cut three holes in a security fence at a property near 13000 W. Kellogg. The thieves went into two RVs and four camper trailers and took items valued at roughly $2,285 and caused an estimated $1,085 in damage. It is the second recent theft at the property, sheriff’s Lt. David Mattingly said. He said thefts aren’t isolated to that property.
In a third incident, the office said, between 1 and 9 a.m. Oct. 23, someone went through a fence gap in the 13000 block of West Kellogg and cut locks or forced open doors on 10 camper trailers. Among the items stolen were two 5,000 watt Troy-Bilt generators and clothing. The loss has been estimated at $1,500 and the damage at $185.
