Summerfield man wakes up to no water after pump stolen from backyard

A 57-year-old Summerfield man called a Marion County sheriff’s deputy for help Sunday after realizing he’d been the victim of a theft.

When the deputy arrived at the man’s residence, located in the 15000 block of SE 80th Ave., he told the deputy that his house water pump had been stolen, along with a circuit breaker and PVC pipe. He said the total value of the missing items was $1,000, the report says.

The man showed the deputy where the water pump had been attached to a tank in his backyard. The deputy noted that it had been unbolted, with the PVC waterline cut and the circuit breaker taken from the nearby electrical box.

The man told the deputy that his was water was working when he went to bed Saturday at about 10 p.m. But when he woke up around 9 a.m., there was no running water so he went to check the breaker and saw that the water pump was missing, a sheriff’s office report states.
