Six metal grates that decorate the base of trees were stolen from the Lakewood Towne Center this week, police said.

The grates are 4 feet by 4 feet, weigh 100 pounds and cost $600 per set.

Five sets were taken from the west side of the old Gottschalks store and 1 ½ sets were taken from the south side of Barnes & Noble.

Police said the grates were stolen sometime between Monday and Wednesday.

Anyone with information is asked to call the Lakewood Police Department’s tip line at 253-830-5064 or the department’s front desk at 253-830-5000.

    They are at the recycling yard.

  2. It was a $100 night of work for someone with a truck. I’m thinking illegals, who are only here for a better life [end sarcasm].

    Sounds like somebody ran out of crack funds. I have to agree about the recycle yard but they are probably in the Portland recycle yard.

    DEKOVEN – I guarantee you that the fine folks whole stole those grates are born and bred US citizens. I will also go so far as to say that they most likely live in the Spanaway/Graham area and are meth addicts.

  5. This is truly sad-sad situation to what our society has become! I’d be checking “paying scrape & recycling businesses first in the local region”. You know the whole motivation is a fast buck!
    It shows what type of low-life’s we have in our region, that don’t respect anything, or properties of others.
