During the wee hours of last Thursday morning thieves broke into the storage container being used on a Habitat for Humanity site. Richmond police spokesman Master Sergeant Lowell Neinast said, “Without going into specific details of the case, I can say that several construction tools were taken which were very significant for the completion of the homes.” The container was in the 1200 block of Clay Road where several houses were being built by the charitable organization.
Neinast said the storage container was being used by the organization to store equipment belonging to the National Organization, Habitat for Humanity, during their Richmond projects.
Neinast explained that the loss was found at 8:30 a.m. Thursday when the project manager found the burglarized container. A list of stolen items has been reported and will be entered into national data bases.
