Nearly $22,000 worth of equipment was stolen from a Thompson Builders construction site on Dogwood Street in Shell Point between 3:30 p.m. on Friday and 6:30 a.m. on Monday.
Beaufort County Sheriff’s Office deputies believe the 16-foot trailer containing the equipment was likely taken in the early morning hours of Monday because the area where the trailer was parked was dry despite recent rain, according to a Sheriff’s Office report.
The stolen items stolen include the trailer, a 24-inch flat packer, a 12-foot power screed and a demolition saw, according to the report. Other items included various saws, blades, chains and other tools. The stolen items were valued at $21,655, according to the report.
