Three marine batteries and a piece of light construction equipment’s battery were taken during a theft from a Tunnel Hill Road address. After further investigation, an air conditioner was also reported missing.
Rebecca Wallace said someone took the battery from a Bobcat dozer and then took three marine batteries from a boat parked under a shed on her property.

In an amended report, deputies located the air conditioner and one of the batteries at a Bates Pike business. They also recovered the three other batteries from a business located on South Lee Highway, according to the report filed during the weekend.
