About $300,000 worth of electrical equipment was stolen from a Bluffton storage yard overnight Friday, according to the Beaufort County Sheriff's Office.
A warehouse supervisor arrived at Hagemeyer North America on Simmonsville Road about 5:30 a.m. to find the storage yard and several shipping containers open, according to a report. Eight pallets of breaker boxes were missing from one container, and light fixtures were missing from another. The containers' locks were gone.
A manager estimated the value of the stolen items at $300,000, but said he would have to take an inventory of the yard for an exact figure. He told deputies he did not suspect any employees in the theft.
