Custom Made BBQ Grill Stolen

The Cookeville police department is investigating the theft of a custom-made barbecue grill, valued at some $16,000. The victim told police that the sixteen-foot grill -- with red wheels, chrome hub caps and two large propane tanks -- was specially built by Stone Brothers Welding in Cookeville. It was taken from the east end of Collegeside Church of Christ, next to the canopy. Anyone with information should call the police department. Meanwhile, police are also investigating a burglary at Builder's Supply Company. Someone broke out a window to gain access and made off with about $250 in cash. The burglary was discovered by an employee of a neighboring business.
