Obviously somebody had some logistics to get this off the lot...unless the keys were left in it.  We don't know about that.

Franklin County Deputies and Pasco Police are searching for this John Deere 410E backhoe, which was stolen sometime last night (Tuesday night) from a construction site near Road 68 and Sandifur.

The construction company is working on a new financial institution building (believed to be STCU), and need it badly. Anyone with any information is urged to call (509)-628-0333. All leads can be confidential.

Unlike Hondas or other popular cars, backhoes are less likely to be parted out, although they could conceivably.

Since the beginning of the Stay At Home lockdown, even with easing, construction site thefts have skyrocketed in our area and elsewhere.
