Stolen silos found in Weathersfield
WEATHERSFIELD - Three 40-foot silos hijacked from Medina in the darkness of night - or in broad daylight; no one's really sure - turned up at a Weathersfield township business. "The funny thing is, I went to Medina and went door to door asking people if they'd seen anything,'' said the owner of the silos, David Michael of Fremont. He made the trip after he learned the silos had been stolen. "You would have needed cranes to take the silos down, trucks to haul them away on. But no one saw anything at all.'' The silos are used by manufacturers, mostly producers of plastic and plastic goods, for storage, Michael said. The Fremont man bought the silos for $12,500 in February 2004 from the auction of a defunct business in Medina. He recently found a buyer willing to pay three times what he paid. But when the buyer got to the lot, the silos were gone. According to Associated Press reports, the structures are so big that the city has to issue a permit for anyone to move them through town. The silos are 40 feet tall by 10 feet wide. Medina police Lt. Bob Starcher told The Associated Press that he thinks someone might have disassembled the silos then trucked them away. Michael said he took his plight to local newspapers, asking for help. More and more newspapers and televisions began picking up the story until someone in the Niles area recognized the silos and called Michael and told him where to find them. The business who bought the silos paid $25,000 for the structures, thinking they'd been bought legitimately, Michael said. Michael has been in the business of buying and selling the storage structures for more than 40 years, he said. "This is kind of unusual,'' he said. "The guy would have to have been a nut to do something like this.''
