Police said tracks in a 300-yard dirt trail leading from the East 28th Street plant property to the docks behind it were left by at least three large dollies. Two of the dollies were wheeled and one was a flat bed. The dollies were left in various locations along the trail.
Workers noticed the theft Saturday when a portion of the plant was without power. The power likely had been shut off to allow the suspects to disconnect and remove the wire, police said.
