The Atascadero Police Department is seeking information regarding the theft of a generator from a business in Atascadero which occurred on the night of Jan. 4. It was discovered missing Jan. 5 at 7:43 a.m. During this incident a Honda 6500 generator was stolen. The generator is valued at approximately $6,000.
