Surveillance camera photo of the vehicle used by burglars to remove landscaping equipment from a Baiting Hollow company early last Wednesday morning.

Police are looking for two men who entered Owen Brothers Landscape Design on Sound Avenue at about 3:35 a.m. on Wednesday, June 8 and stole landscaping equipment from an enclosed trailer. The intruders cut the locks off the trailer to gain entry. They stole commercial mowers, weed wackers, hedge trimmers, back pack blowers and chain saws, among assorted other things.

The subjects placed the items onto an open landscape trailer, which they removed from a truck in the yard, and fled the area in the above-pictured SUV (which is possibly a silver or gray-colored Lincoln), police said.

Anyone having information concerning this investigation is requested to call the Riverhead Police Department at (631) 727-4500 ext. 332 or write the Riverhead Police Department at 210 Howell Avenue, Riverhead, New York, 11901. Attention: Detective Division
