CRIME OF OPPORTUNITY: Concealed by fog, thieves hit Tri-Lakes

October 3, 2013

COLUMBIA CITY — Thieves used Sunday night’s fog to their advantage, stealing from and rummaging through at least nine properties, according to the Whitley County Sheriff’s Department.

Most of the homes affected were on Colony and Crescent Avenues in the Tri-Lakes area.

Many items were stolen, including a motorcycle.

The thieves didn’t get far with the bike, though, as it didn’t have any oil in it, causing the engine to seize by the time it got to the Lions Club, located less than a half-mile from where the thefts occurred on Colony Avenue.
