The Nelson Police Department is investigating a rash of thefts over the past few days.

On Saturday, a vehicle parked at Railway Avenue and Silica Street had its window smashed overnight and a GPS device and radio were stolen. On Saturday, an overnight break and enter at a business in the 600 block of Front Street resulted in several thousand dollars damage. The culprits stole cash from the business’ office.

On Monday, two reports were received of fuel being stolen from commercial vehicles, and a wildfire pump was stolen from a government vehicle in for repairs at a local car dealership. Sgt. Dan Markevich said the pump is a Honda Goliath model with a government unit number decal displayed on it “and is quite distinctive.”
