A stolen tractor and its trailer were found yesterday in a parking lot of a Cleveland suburb, about a hundred miles from its Maumee home, police said.
Late Monday or early Tuesday, the locked chain at the gate of Schmidt Lease, Inc., 1373 Conant St., was cut and the sales yard entered. Taken from six semis were 26 tires valued at $9,750.
Also taken was the 1998 Volvo semi valued at $52,000 and its $10,000 trailer. The truck was found in Avon Lake, Ohio.
"They worked quickly to get those tires and must have had power tools," said Detective Sgt. Gayle Lohrbach.
