The Lewiston Tribune says thefts of batteries from passenger vehicles and heavy equipment have been reported recently in Whitman, Garfield and Nez Perce counties.

Nez Perce County’s Sheriff says they believe all the thefts are connected and the batteries are being stolen for the metal inside that can be sold to recycling companies. Their advice is to keep your car locked so thieves can’t get to the lever that opens your car hood.
