Authorities are looking for almost $350,000 in air compressor parts stolen from a business near Coweta between November 23rd and 26th.

The Wagoner County Sheriff's Office says the parts are used in the manufacture of concrete.

Each piece of equipment weighs around 2,000 pounds. All of the items were on pallets and deputies say they would have required a fork lift to be loaded onto a vehicle. Deputies say the thieves probably loaded the parts onto a flat bed trailer.

Deputies believe the thieves will try to sell the parts, which include shafts, related housings and end caps, for scrap.

The business is located on state Highway 51 near the intersection of 385th East Avenue between Coweta and Wagoner.
