"Construction theft is a very popular and organized crime because it is so easy to get away with," said Rick Byars, president of the Construction Industry Crime Resource Council in Memphis, Tenn. By some estimates - no national data are formally collected - the dollar amount of unrecovered stolen tools and equipment from construction sites is comparable to the amount taken during bank robberies.

Richard Lee Donnelly of the 6600 block of Golden Ring Road in Rosedale entered an Alford plea to a charge of first-degree murder in the death Aug. 27, 2000 of 38-year-old Rosemarie Shew.
