BARKEYVILLE – An ambitious thief gets away with a huge amount of steel in Barkeyville.  Rangu Sing Gurpeet, a 50-year-old trucker from Mercer, had his entire load of 40-foot structural steel beams stolen, along with the Trailstar flatbed trailer he was hauling them in.

Police tell us this occurred some time between March 30th and the present date as Gurpeet’s vehicle was parked near Freightliner truck repair.

The loss is estimated at 27-thousand dollars.
