Tools valued at $700 were stolen from the back seat of a vehicle parked, apparently unlocked, in front of a store Friday morning, Oct. 29, a man told police.
The man had parked at Ring’s End Lumber, 181 West Ave. at about 7 a.m. and was in the store for only about 10 minutes when he returned to find several tools were missing.
The police announcement didn’t specifically say that the vehicle was unlocked, but no mention was made of a break-in, either.
The tools included a power drill, impact drill, jigsaw, two tool batteries and a trim-nail gun.
The incident time as it appeared on the blotter report, which usually means when it was reported to police, was 2:10 p.m., according to the police announcement.
