Current Unsolved Crimes
The job site at the old Cavalier Hotel was secured on May 21, 2016 at 2:15 pm. When an employee returned on May 23 at 5:45 am, he found a rear access door that had been secured with plywood had been kicked in and someone forced their way into an office. The following items were stolen: (3) Stihl Chop Saws, (1) Dewalt Demo Hammer, (1) Cobalt socket set, (1) Stihl or Dewalt Impact Drill.
Given the location of entry and the fact that other valuable tools that were unsecured were bypassed to get into the office and job boxes, it appears that whoever broke in knew what to look for and where.
There are no surveillance photos available at this time.
