The King George County Sheriff’s Department is seeking the help of the public in locating a large orange wood chipper that belongs to Asplundh Tree Service. The wood chipper was taken from a work site along Route 3 during a long weekend in February.
Lt. Monty Clift of the sheriff’s department said the wood chipper was left hooked up to a Asplundh truck while the crew returned home for the weekend. “Sometime between Feb. 21 and Feb. 25, someone unhooked the chipper from the truck, hooked it to another vehicle and drove off.”
