Police look for suspect in Watertown plow controllers theft

WATERTOWN, Conn. (WTNH)-- Police in Watertown are looking for the man who stole plow controllers from a business last month.

Police say on December 20th, just after 11:30 a.m., video surveillance footage captured a man entering the property at Proe's Services at 1500 Echo Lake Road. The man broke the locks on the business's trucks that contained the Fisher "V Plow" controls. The plow controllers are the devices that are used inside the trucks by the operator so they can operate the plow.

Police say once the man got all the locks off, he went into the trucks and stole the controls, which are valued at about $300 each. The suspect then left the lot around 11:43 a.m. in newer model, dark blue, Buick. The car had a temporary plate in the rear window and there was a passenger in the front seat who never exited the car.

Police describe the suspect as a white male with a large build, wearing a green hooded sweatshirt with a logo on the left chest, blue jeans and boots. Anyone with information on the suspect is urged to contact Watertown police at 860-945-5200.
