According to Sgt. Carol Ogroinc, the 41-year-old complainant was leaving the site of Bistro Bonnenuit where he had been doing some work around 11 a.m.
He reportedly loaded a black backpack with an assortment of tools into the back of his truck and noticed at approximately 5:30 p.m. the following day, Tuesday, August 20, that the bag was gone.
Contained in the bag had been two cordless DeWalt drills valued at approximately $140 each, a whole saw valued at $18, miscellaneous screwdrivers valued at $50, two channel lock pliers valued at approximately $15 each and the backpack itself.
There were no signs of forced entry into the truck, Ogrinc said.
