Burglars took $20,000 worth of tools, generators and other equipment from Templeton businesses over the weekend, according to the Sheriff’s Department.
The theft occurred between 5:30 p.m. Oct. 24 and 6 a.m. Oct. 25 at 212 Easy St., the department said in a news release. The victims were AC Contractors, Templeton Steel and Koker Metals.
The department said the burglars cut large holes in the fence on the property and used a hand truck that was in a creek to haul away the equipment.
Items taken included Makita drills, Milwaukee saws, a portable band saw, a Mikasa Jumping Jack soil compactor, and Honda EU3000 generators, the department said.
Sheriff’s North Station personnel are asking that anyone who was in the area overnight and may have seen the burglars or some type of vehicle to contact them at 434-4290.
