If you happen to see a rogue, $20,000 paving machine around Bismarck-Mandan, the police would like to have a word with you.

According to The Bismarck Tribune, an Allentown, PA man reported that he unloaded the $20,000 paver in the Comfort Suites parking lot on March 5th. The next morning, the paver was missing.

Here's the thing: The paver doesn't need a key to start, but it is pretty massive and heavy. So, whoever stole it would have needed a pretty heavy duty trailer to haul the thing away, leading me to believe that this was somehow planned.

Maybe the paver thief is planning on randomly repaving streets around Bismarck-Mandan. Maybe there's a new paving superhero among us...
