Orange City Implement Dealer Hit By Theft, Fire

Date posted - January 11, 2012

An Orange City implement dealer has been hit with a double whammy. Not only did someone steal toys from their shop, but a fire appears to have been set in the office as well.

According to a manager at Northwest Implement, someone stole toy tractors from the business, and then it appears that they set fire to a desk in the office area. The fire was basically contained to the desk, but there is heat, smoke and soot damage in the building.

The Orange City Police Department reports that entry was gained by breaking out an office window.

It doesn’t appear that anything else was stolen. The burglary happened sometime between Sunday afternoon and Monday morning.

The state Fire Marshal’s Office and the Orange City Police are investigating.

If you have any information that might help the police solve this case, you are asked to call the Orange City Police at 712-707-4251.
