Heavy iron drain grates were reportedly stolen from a Georgetown Road car wash.

A report filed this week with the Bradley County Sheriff’s Office noted the owner of the car wash said three wash bays were found to be missing the drain covers which typically run from one side of the bay to the other. A drain pipe in one bay was also reportedly damaged as the grates were removed.

The owner of the business estimated loss and damage at $3,400.

- A Stihl backpack leaf blower was reported missing by a homeowner after a stranger approached her home earlier in the day.

According to a report filed by deputy Cordus Waller of the Bradley County Sheriff’s Office, he responded to a Thompson Springs Road residence and spoke with Kaitlyn Cabrera.

Cabrera said a white male dressed in a dirty T-shirt and jeans knocked on her door and asked if she had a son named “Mike.”

Cabrera replied “No,” and the man stepped away.

After a short while, Cabrera went outside her home and noticed the leaf blower wasn’t where it had been stored.

Cabrera said she searched around her property and couldn’t locate it, then contacted BCSO.

The leaf blower was valued at $300.

- Detectives continue to investigate a theft that was reported at a Treemont Circle address recently.

The loss was estimated at $460.

Deputy Kolby Duckett noted there were no signs of forced entry evident at the residence.
