Gig Harbor police said Monday that more than $1 million worth of goods may have been stolen from commercial or rental trucks in the area.
Officers found some of the stolen property in three Key Peninsula storage units, after employees of a local lumberyard reported a break-in April 24.
GPS tracking of the vehicle showed someone took it to Fox Island, dropped off the wood, then dumped the truck back near the business, police said.
Investigators identified some suspects, and found stolen property amounting to $200,000 in several storage units in unincorporated Pierce County, involving at least eight stolen trucks and nine victims, police said.
Among the goods taken were personal family items, military equipment, commercial goods and tools.
The stolen goods could amount to a value of more that $1 million because investigators think it’s possible some of the items were sold, police said.
One person was arrested, and investigators are working to determine if there are other suspects responsible for the thefts.
