Traffic light generator stolen in Cedar Rapids

Posted:

CEDAR RAPIDS (KWWL) -- Authorities in Cedar Rapids say someone has stolen a portable generator that was powering a traffic signal on a new detour route.

Police say the thieves, who struck late Monday night or early Tuesday morning, also took the chain and padlock that were securing the generator.

The generator on Cottage Grove Avenue and 34th street SE was there because of a detour created by construction on the East Post Road Bridge over Indian Creek.

The detour is expected to last seven to eight months.
