by on June 15, 2013 9:31 AM

Gear worth thousands of dollars has been stolen from a State College rental company. The theft happened at Best Line Equipment sometime late Thursday night or early Friday morning.

The business is located on Hawbaker Industrial Drive in Patton Township. Best Line Equipment rents a variety of products including lifts, generators, backhoes and assorted tools.

Police say "construction items" were taken, but did not reveal exactly what was stolen.

Adding insult to injury, the thief piled the stolen loot onto a Best Line pick-up truck and trailer and drove away. The vehicle and trailer were later found outside Centre County.

If you have information about the crime please contact Patton Township police at 234-0273.
