It is an ongoing theft happening over a period of time, and there is a suspect. Maybe lightning doesn’t strike in the same place twice, but a certain thief has struck time and again in North Wilkesboro. According to a report filed with the Wilkes Sheriff’s Office, a resident on South Windy Gap Road says that property has been disappearing for several weeks. The victim stated that a space heater was stolen from his home about 3 months ago, a pressure washer was taken 4 weeks ago, and this week a chain saw was stolen. Again, there is a suspect in the ongoing string of thefts and charges are pending further investigation by Sheriff’s Deputies.
