JOPLIN, MO-- From stolen lawn mowers to missing tractors, a Joplin business has been hit four times in the last several months. Workers at S and H Farm Supply estimate the equipment stolen in the last six months adds up to more than $150 thousand. They're working with Joplin police - who have increased patrols in the area and are looking for the stolen merchandise. But workers are also taking steps to prevent future thefts.
S & H General Manager Eric Roach said, "We're going to have a company with a remote system for 24 hour security. They're going to be watching our property 24 hours a day, 365 days a year."
The company will also beef up perimeter fencing and exterior lights. They also plan to offer a reward to help solve the case.
