A series of recent thefts is under investigation in Knox County.
Sheriff's deputies say thieves are targeting sheds... barns and garages. Tools and scrap metal and other items that can be sold for fast cash appear to be of most interest to the thieves. Knox County Sheriff Robert Becker says that if you see suspicious vehicles or notice something missing, contact the sheriffs department. Thieves can also be deterred by locking vehicles and buildings and keeping valuable items out of sight.
