The City of Conway Street Department, located at 100 E. Robins St., says almost $2,000 worth of tools was stolen from two city trucks.
A department supervisor told police he believes the theft occurred Monday night. Department workers told police they believe the suspects gained access through an area of “old fencing” that surrounds the building.
Police said there was no evidence to be collected because the trucks were used prior to the theft being reported.
The items claimed to be stolen included a Skil hammer drill and bit set, a socket set, measuring wheel, a Stihl gas-powered concrete saw and a Skil circular saw. Keys to the trucks’ utility beds were also reported stolen.
The items were valued at $1,964.
