Stolen construction equipment apparently returned
Some heavy construction equipment that was reported stolen from a Kennewick home over the weekend has apparently been returned.
Workers at R-2 Construction say on Saturday morning, they noticed that a yellow flatbed trailer carrying a track-skid steer loader was missing from a home on South Highland Drive.
A man who lives at the home works with the construction company and keeps the equipment at his house.
But this morning, workers noticed the equipment was back - and the trailer had a flat tire.
Workers say the man who lives at the home did not give anyone permission to use the equipment, which is worth nearly $40,000.
