In Annapolis, snow removal equipment stolen ahead of storm

Talk about bad timing.

Recreation and Parks Department officials in Maryland's capital say part of snow removal equipment has been stolen, just as a monster storm is bearing down on the region.

A parks maintenance worker told Annapolis police that the mechanism that lifts and maneuvers a snow plow blade was missing when he arrived for work Tuesday morning.

On the ground next to the vehicle were the bolts that attach the mechanism to the truck.

The department's workers and nine trucks plow recreations facilities and sometimes help clear roads and other areas.

Workers got another snow plow pump to get ready for the weekend storm.
