Multiple vehicles stolen from Cushman’s RV and Truck Repair

COLUMBIA COUNTY, Ga. (WJBF) – Investigators are searching for the group who stole multiple vehicles from an RV and truck repair shop.

The Columbia County sheriffs office says Wednesday night around 9 P.M., someone stole 3 vehicles and a trailer from Cushman’s RV and Truck Repair on Nature’s Way in Appling near I-20.

Employees tell me they think the heavy duty gate to the property was rammed and ripped right off its hinges.

I’m told authorities were first tipped off to the break in because this gate was in the middle of the road.

And the reason we’re saying stolen “vehicles” is because this wasn’t your average cars.

One truck, one car, one enclosed trailer and, the really odd one, a bucket truck.

The sheriff’s office released pictures three of the four.

The vehicles taken are listed below:

  • White 2003 GMC 2500 HD 6.0 with GA tag BQC4133.
  • 20 foot long black enclosed trailer with GA tag TS06M18
  • White 2016 Dodge Ram bucket truck with BEAMS labeled on the doors. SC tag P744588
  • Grey 4 door 2000 Honda Accord EX with GA tag PPA4669

Detectives tell me video from a nearby business shows all of these vehicles headed down the road together last night around 9 p.m.

The sheriff’s office says a group of people stole them from this lot shared by Cushman RV and Truck Repair and Reeves Wrecker Service.

The bucket truck was waiting for customer pick-up, the rest of the vehicles belonged to Cushman and Reeve’s employees.

Investigators say although they have no suspects at this time. They have no reason to believe this was part of a crime ring because they have not seen a theft like this in Columbia County for a while now.

I asked detectives if there was a learning lesson from this for other businesses.

He said not really because Cushmans and Reeves had very sturdy gate with a chain lock. There wasn’t much else they could have done to prevent this from happening.

Right now, their mission is to find the criminals, plus the three vehicles and trailer they stole and deputies need your help.
