Weedeaters taken from work program

IRONTON — The Ironton Municipal Court community service program suffered a setback last week when some of its weedeaters were stolen.

J.D. McDaniel, director of the work program, said three weedeaters were stolen from his Ironton home, along with tree climbing equipment for his side business, McDaniel Tree Service. McDaniel said someone broke into his privacy fence to gain entry to a carport where the items were kept.

There are currently 15 people on the work crew, but with the loss of equipment, McDaniel has fewer people working.

“It’s extremely important to have my equipment because whenever I’m missing equipment, I can’t produce the quality of work that needs to be done on a given day,” McDaniel said. “I could have anywhere from 15 to 20 guys working. Now I have three less people working.”

The Ironton Police Department is investigating the theft.
