EDISON - A Woodbridge man says thieves made off with $70,000 worth of his landscaping equipment this week.  

Nelson Owen III, of Action Property Management, says the thieves took his truck and stole his equipment Wednesday night or early Thursday morning near King Georges Post Road in Edison.

"They stole my entire business," Owen told News 12 New Jersey.  

Owen is urging anyone who may have information about the theft to call Edison police.

The theft of landscaping equipment is a familiar case in New Jersey. In 2014, a Bergen County company caught thieves on camera stealing equipment for the third time in a short period.
