Thief steals saw worth $1,700 from Mt. Horeb business

Mt. Horeb police are looking for a man who stole a saw that retails for around $1,700 from Sloan Implement on Jan. 7. The crime was caught on surveillance cameras.

Sloan Implement employees say the man, who was wearing a fluorescent yellow hat and jacket, sunglasses, and a face mask, walked into the store, wandered around for a few minutes, and when employees were distracted, picked up a Stihl TS 700 saw and walked out of the store. The suspect then drove off in a 2015–16 full-size, red Chevy pickup truck. The truck had a bed cover on it and a salt spreader on the back. Both license plates were covered in duct tape.

Employees didn’t notice the saw was missing until Jan. 11, at which point they looked at surveillance video and saw the theft.
