Thieves jet with fountains
BATON ROUGE - At least two men broke into a water garden center and stole about $5,000 worth of equipment.
They stole concrete fountains that weigh about 400 lbs. a piece between 3:30 and 4:45 a.m. Sunday at Harb's Oasis on Coursey Blvd.
The heist was caught on video, and showed someone loading a number of fountains and sugar bowls into the bed of a truck.
"It seems like someone knew exactly what they wanted to get," said owner Charbel Harb.
The thieves came back for seconds. Harb told News Two the thieves might be in the fountain business and have shopped at his store before.
He's hoping someone will recognize the people caught on surveillance video or recognize their truck.
"Or somebody is getting these fountains installed in their yard, and they really were stolen from Harb's Oasis," he said.
Anyone with information, call police.
