Cops report rise in well-pad thefts

Authorities are seeking leads from the public following a spike in thefts of solar panels, batteries and related equipment from well pads in western Garfield County.

Five of the cases are inactive unless further leads develop, the sheriff’s office said.

The crimes occurred on pads owned by EnCana Oil & Gas (USA) Inc. and Williams, and the total estimated loss is $13,650.

Anyone with information in the cases or who has seen suspicious activity in areas of energy development is asked to contact Garfield County Crime Stoppers at or 970-945-0101.
