The Johnson County Sheriff's Office is investigating after several businesses were burglarized.
Sheriff Dwayne Price said Ben's Tires, Big Sandy Community and Technical College, Apple Valley Sanitation, Christian Appalachian Project and Martin's Peterbilt businesses in the Hager Hill area were burglarized.
Deputies said the Christian Appalachian Project was the first business to be burglarized on August 20. Deputies said nearly $100,000 in power tools were stolen. The next businesses were burglarized in the following weeks by what is believed to be the same four suspects, deputies said. Some of the stolen items have been recovered including a tractor trailer taken from Martin's Peterbilt.
Deputies said in three of the businesses, there was surveillance video of the suspects. The video is currently being enhanced at an FBI laboratory in Louisville.
Anyone with information is asked to call the Johnson County Sheriff's Office at 606-789-3411.
