Scrapper picks up missing equipment

An industrial magnetic controller left out at a Rochester Hills business on Saturday, May 19, in the 1900 block of Production was reported stolen by an engineering company. A representative from Special Mold Engineering told sheriff's deputies an unknown man in a blue Chrysler minivan was apparently in the area looking for scrap metal about 1:20 p.m. and allegedly took a Technomagnete magnetic controller that was left outside on the ground. Deputies said security video of the incident shows the man taking an item from a dumpster, then picking up the controller left on the ground, before driving away from the scene. It wasn't clear if the man believed the controller was left out as trash. Authorities recommended the business post no trespassing signs on the property. The controller was valued at $2,500.
