SOMERSET, Ky. (LEX 18) — Pulaski County Sheriff's Deputies are investigating after a Somerset business owner reported about $50,000 in stolen lawn care equipment earlier this week.

Marcum's Lawncare owner, Tyler Marcum, said he went to pick up his trailer from his storage unit on Monday and found the latch to the unit broken.

"I raised the door up and of course, you know, my trailer's gone," Marcum said.

The trailer was holding multiple John Deere mowers, four trimmers and two backpack blowers, he said.

"You've got customers that depend on you, and there's no way of getting to them or taking care of stuff," he said, "but you've just kind of got to push through it."

Friends and family have lent Marcum equipment to continue his work while deputies look for the stolen equipment, he said.

They've also offered a reward of $2,000 to anyone with information that leads deputies to the trailer, Marcum said.

Anyone with information on the stolen equipment is asked to call the Pulaski County Sheriff's Office at 606-678-5145.
