Further proof that thieves will steal almost anything left unattended:
A steel animal trap was taken less than two days after it was placed at a Winder residence by a Barrow County Animal Control employee.
According to a Barrow County Sheriff’s Office incident report, a Winder woman asked for the trap to be placed in her carport on Fort Street on April 9.
On April 11, she called Animal Control to say the trap was gone. She was away from the house on April 10, and thought that may be when the trap was stolen.
The trap, which was labeled as county property, was valued at $100.
