Alert: Be on lookout for missing building: Kern County Sheriff's deputies are on the lookout for an 8-by-10-foot corrugated steel building, reported stolen from K.L Kellogg & Sons Equipment Yard, 3500 Fruitvale Avenue, where it had been in storage for about three years.
The structure, valued at $12,000 was reported missing shortly before 4 p.m. yesterday by Howard Bell, owner. But it was taken anytime during the last 4 1/2 months, dating back to October, when Howard said he last saw it. It is dark green in color and had furniture and office equipment inside.
A flatbed truck and heavy equipment for loading would be needed to remove the building, Bell said. He and several other companies use the equipment storage lot to store oilfield equipment.
Earlier yesterday, deputies were called to investigate a series of burglaries to trucks parked in a lot not far from the building theft site, at 3410 Fruitvale Avenue. The incidents occurred between 5:30 p.m. Tuesday and 8 a.m. yesterday.
