19 tanks of welding gas stolen from Lincoln business, police say


Police say someone took off with 19 tanks of welding gas from a Lincoln business near Interstate 80 last week.

Officer Erin Spilker said they were called to the Tractor Supply at the 27th Street exit at 1 p.m. Thursday afternoon about the larceny that happened sometime between 7 p.m. Tuesday and 5 a.m. Thursday.

She said an employee found the latch on an outside cage had been cut and the business was missing 19 tanks. They range in size from 1- to 5-feet tall and contain C25, acetylene, oxygen and argon and were worth $5,500.

"Somebody's got to know something on this one," Spilker said.
