LONGMONT — A $2,000 reward is being offered for information leading to the arrest of anyone involved in a string of RV business break-ins just outside of the city.
Vandals damaged about 40 RVs and boats and stole more than $20,000 in electronics and other property from three storage lots last week, according to a Weld County Sheriff’s report.
Investigators are looking for any information on the incidents at the lots, which sit just outside Longmont city limits.
“There was damage done to RVs and boats, as well as property stolen,” said Weld County Sheriff’s spokeswoman Margie Martinez.
She said the break-ins occurred March 12 and 13 and all of the businesses were located on the 4000 block of Camelot Circle.
“It appears that the intent of the crime was to obtain electronics equipment,” Martinez said.
Additionally, the vandals smashed windows and doors on RVs, slashed canvas boat covers and stole CB and satellite radios, as well as televisions, she said.
Weld County investigators currently have no suspects in the case.
The owner of one of the lots northeast of Longmont, Camelot RV Storage at 4075 Camelot Circle, said he has stepped up security at his lot.
The man, who declined to give his name, said he’s “been through enough trouble, and doesn’t want anymore of it.”
Even though the break-ins happened 10 days ago, Martinez did not know the locations of the other two storage centers that were vandalized.
The Family Motor Coach Association is offering a $2,000 reward for information leading to an arrest and conviction.
Anyone with leads in this case is asked to call the Weld County Sheriff’s Office at 800-436-9276 or 970-356-4015, Ext. 2825.
They can also call the FMCA at 800-543-3622.
“Right now we are waiting for information to come in,” said Martinez.
