A Muskegon, Mich., area recreational vehicle business was hit by thieves last weekend, making it the third time since the end of May that items have been taken from the dealership, according to the Muskegon Chronicle.

About 2 p.m. Monday (June 14), an employee of Lakeshore RV Center, 4500 E. Apple, reported that a 26-inch flat-screen TV was stolen from one of the camper trailers parked on the business lot sometime over the weekend, according to a Muskegon County Sheriff’s Office report.

The employee told a deputy who responded to the scene that several other campers on the lot also were entered earlier this month and televisions were stolen, according to the sheriff’s office report.

Michigan State Police officials were investigating that case, she said.

On June 4, the same business reported that power supply wires were cut and removed sometime during the long Memorial Day weekend, police said.

Authorities suspect the wires were taken for the copper because of high copper prices.

The power supply wires were removed only from the fifth-wheel trailers, the police report said. The wires are used to supply power to brake lights from a vehicle towing a travel trailer, according to the sheriff’s office report.

As of late Friday, no suspects were identified and no arrests had been made, according to police. Anyone with information on the thefts can call a tip into Silent Observer at (231) 722-7463.
