Multiple items were reported as missing, including a camping stove, grill, lawnmower, snowblower, several toolboxes, and a set of padio furniture. The items were worth more than $5,000 total.
Residents of an apartment on the 5200 block of Heather Drive also reported a theft that occured over the weekend. According to the husband and wife, they left Friday morning to go to California and returned on Monday evening to find that their front door was unlocked and their flat-screen TV missing.
