  • Thieves apparently broke into the maintenance building at Lakeview Nature Center and stole two major pieces of equipment, accruing to Macomb Park District officials.
    On Tuesday, Macomb Park Board President John Hemingway announced that the loss was reported to Macomb police and to the district's insurance carrier and an investigation is ongoing.
    Park Director Ray Peterson said the thieves apparently brought equipment that allowed them to cut locks and chains and entered the building. He said they stole a utility tractor, a snow blower and several smaller pieces of equipment, taking an estimated $20,000 worth of equipment.
    Peterson said he believes the break-in occurred either last Thursday evening or early on Friday morning.
