Maine family left scrambling after wood chipper used for business is stolen

MONTVILLE, Maine-After Eric Dayan and his family returned home from a camping trip last weekend, the Montville arborist discovered his 2,000-pound wood chipper had been stolen.

The theft of the $ 20,000 tool, which he purchased new three years ago and serves as an integral part of his business, has hit Dayan hard. He had left the bright-yellow wood chipper parked on his property on the dead-end dirt Twitchell Road.

“I’d never in a million years thought this would happen,” he said. “I was in shock for a while. I kept expecting it to be behind a bush, or for someone to have borrowed it. ”
