A thief made off with some roof repair materials from a St. Helena Island home, enough to set back an already drawn-out hurricane recovery.
About 10 pounds of roofing nails, two rolls of roofing felt and 20 bundles of shingles were stolen from a Seaside Road yard between about 4 p.m. Thursday and 3:30 p.m. Friday, according to a Beaufort County Sheriff’s Office report. The materials were worth a total of about $740.
The homeowner had not moved back into her home after a fallen tree damaged her roof during Hurricane Matthew, according to the report. The woman’s daughter has been routinely checking on the house.
