1,000-pound staircase stolen from downstate business in Peoria

Thieves who aren't afraid of a little heavy lifting made off with more than $7,000 worth of galvanized stainless steel.

The theft happened overnight Tuesday at H3 Steel in Peoria.

The items reported stolen Wednesday included a 1,000-pound staircase that was taken from a flatbed trailer, according to a report.

The employee who reported the theft told police it would take several people and a truck to move the items. (source)
