Police Investigating Break-In At Dacco Plant

Cookeville police are working with the Jackson County sheriff's department to investigate a burglary at the Dacco plant on Bowser Road this week. Police say the Jackson County sheriff's department contacted them requesting help in confirming that a Dodge truck which had been recovered in their county was, in fact, stolen. Officers went to the Dacco plant building and found that someone had apparently cut off a lock on the building to gain access and had stolen two trucks, as well as about 70 transmission housings, valued at some $200 apiece. Investigation is continuing. Meanwhile, police say ten catalytic converters, valued at $5,000, were stolen by someone who broke into the lot at Cumberland Chrysler. The thief also broke out the windows of several vehicles and stolen at least three radios.
