[ARCHIVED] Reward Offered for Stolen Excavator and Trailer

Police Badge

A $50,000 excavator was stolen from a Las Cruces job site earlier this month and now an insurance company is offering a $2,000 reward for information that helps locate the construction equipment and the trailer it was loaded on.

Las Cruces police learned the 2016 Caterpillar 305E2 Excavator was parked within a fenced yard at a job site on the 2400 block of south Main Street. The equipment was reported stolen on February 10 and the contractor believes it was taken between the afternoon of Friday, Feb. 7, 2020 and the morning of Monday, Feb. 10, 2020.

Contractors told police that whoever stole the excavator appears to have loaded it onto a utility trailer that was also stolen from the job site. The trailer is described as a black 2019 J & B flatbed or platform trailer.

The Travelers Indemnity insurance company is offering a reward of as much as $2,000 for information that leads to the recovery of the excavator and trailer. Anyone with information on the whereabouts of the excavator and trailer, or who may have stolen them, is asked to call Las Cruces police at 575/526-0795.
