A local company was defrauded out of more than $4,500 in equipment, an Archbold police report said.
A representative of Lee Supply Corporation, Archbold, told officers on Thursday, April 14, the firm had shipped two solar pumps, valued at $4,558.13. The sale was based on a credit-card transaction over the Internet. The card proved to be invalid.
The theft took place sometime between 1:06 pm, Friday, April 8, and the time of the report.
