PORTAGE, Ind. -- Northern Indiana police are looking for thieves who stole about 24,000 pounds of nickel from a business in Portage using a forklift and a truck.

The owner of ISA Sales and Service reported the theft to Portage police Saturday. The metal was worth about $225,000 and was stored in brick form in bags within padlocked shipping containers outside the business.

The Times of Munster reports surveillance cameras show a large box truck pulling up to the business Friday night and backing up to a loading dock. The footage shows two suspects entering the business and taking a forklift before the truck pulls away about an hour later.
