Sheriff’s Report: Construction equipment worth $30,000-$40,000 stolen from Kilby Road worksite
An estimated $30,000-$40,000 worth of tools and equipment was stolen from a worksite in Gorgoza Park sometime Sunday evening into Monday morning.
According to a report from the Summit County Sheriff’s Office, the site manager called deputies and said someone had cut the padlock on the south entrance of the site on Kilby Road then entered or broke into containers or buildings owned by eight separate construction companies.
A list of the stolen equipment includes a sawzall, a walk-behind saw, laser equipment and a power tool estimated to be worth $12,000. Deputies believe some of the construction equipment was used to load stolen items. The agency was investigating the incident.
