BONITA SPRINGS, FL- A large hole, cut through the fence, that's how deputies say thieves got into the storage yard of forestry resources landscape supply on old 41 and stole thousands of dollars of landscape equipment.
Owner of JK Landscaping John Levanosky says, "They went in right through here, they pulled their truck right up in here, they cut that one gate, must be at least 8, 9, 10, 11, 14 trailers and they were very specific about what they took."
Dozens of blade edgers, blowers, weed eaters, and chainsaws, each worth at least $400 some much more.
"They were almost like ghosts, they came in, took it, closed the doors, put the locks back in their place, and and just disappeared."
Something that leads the owner of JK Landscaping to believe this was the work of professionals.
"People steal from Naples area Fort Myers got to Orlando, then they steal from Orlando, go to Miami, they do a triangle and just move this stuff all over the place."
Lee County Sheriff's deputies say it's too early to tell whether these thieves are part of an organized ring. Last week Collier County had a similar landscaping theft in which more than 10 thousand dollars of equipment was stolen, something tough on business.
"You shut down for a day, you regroup, you can't let it get you down, you just gotta keep moving."
