Sheriff’s Report, Aug. 24-26, 2016
Nearly $30,000 in construction equipment was stolen last week from the future site of the Skullcandy headquarters building at the Park City Tech Center, according to the Summit County Sheriff’s Office.
At around 7:20 a.m. on Thursday, Aug. 18, dispatch received a report from an Ogden-based company that several construction trailers had been accessed sometime during the night. Approximately $27,950 worth of tools were taken from the site, located behind the Park City Chamber of Commerce/Convention and Visitor’s Bureau in Kimball Junction. Power drills, nail guns, circular saws and air compressors were among the items that were reported missing.
Sgt. Ron Bridge said thefts at construction sites are rare. However, he quickly added that they do occasionally occur. He said victims can protect themselves by marking their tools and recording serial numbers.
“Perpetrators can be sought and brought to criminal charges with help from the victims in cases like this,” Bridge said. “Unfortunately, not a lot of people write down the serial numbers or put some kind of identifying mark on their tools.
“When we go to the pawn shops or peruse classifieds it is difficult to pick one item out of thousands and say, ‘that is probably the one,’” he said.
The case is still under investigation.
