Tool Theft In #Sackville. Please Share And Keep An Eye Out. 

Release from the RCMP: 

Halifax District RCMP investigates rash of tool thefts, Lower Sackville, N.S.

Last night, just after 2 a.m., suspects entered a van parked in a private driveway on Rankin Dr. in Lower Sackville and removed a number of tools. The suspects loaded the tools into their truck, a dark coloured pick-up truck, and sped away from the scene. Within minutes, RCMP made multiple patrols of the area but were not able to locate the suspects. The tools are believed to be valued at between approximately $7,000 and $10,000, and mostly bear the brand name Dewalt. The tools are also labelled with either the owner’s name or ‘MRS Construction’ in permanent marker. Several items, including the victim’s van, have been seized for forensic examination, and the file remains under investigation.
On Tuesday evening, Halifax District RCMP were also called to investigate two break-ins to outbuildings where tools were stolen. A utility trailer parked at a construction site on Westridge Dr. in Tantallon was broken into, and several Dewalt tools and other brands were stolen. They include:

Stand-up compressor
Bosch 12′ chop saw

Hilti concrete drill and bits

Makita 8 1/4” skill saw

Cordless gear

Dewalt SDS drill and bits

Dewalt portable table saw

Max Strip nailer

Stabbila plate level

Makita coil nailer

Bosch radio

Suspects also broke into a storage container located at the rear of a business in the 400 block of Cobequid Rd. and stole a generator and a number of small power tools.

About Jeff Nielsen

For people who love Lower Sackville, Nova Scotia! A lot of us lovingly call it “Sack-Vegas” which I personally find hilarious. I hope to have this column be a place for us to discuss our hometown, poke fun at ourselves (nothing too derogatory about our town though), post some old or current pics….whatever we want to do with it.
