Crime reports: Several Hargray work vans burglarized

Eleven Hargray work vans on Hilton Head Island were vandalized overnight Monday and several power tools were stolen from inside, according to a Beaufort County Sheriff's Office report released Wednesday.

Employees of the telecommunications company, located at 856 William Hilton Parkway, noticed the vans' smashed windows Tuesday morning when arriving to work, the report said.

Employees told police someone had broken the windows, then reached inside to unlock the vans, the report said.

Tools used for cable installations worth a total of $850 were taken in the burglary, and a Hargray raincoat worth $40 also was stolen, the report said.

In all, 12 windows were broken, resulting in $1,200 in damage, the report said.
