Dyersburg Police are investigating the theft of $16,000 worth of items that were to be used for the recent renovations to downtown Dyersburg.
The theft was reported to police last week after employees with Pyramid Electric of Memphis noticed 16 green powder-coated metal balls missing from their job storage site near the Farmers Market in downtown Dyersburg. The balls, valued at $1,000 apiece, were to be used as end caps for the new street lights being installed around the court square. The items were left in a field and had last been seen around Nov. 20.
