Tools worth more than $1,800 were stolen from an unlocked tool box in a pickup parked outside an apartment building in the 2200 block of Jackson Drive in Arnold. The theft happened about 7 a.m. March 2, Arnold Police reported.
An employee for Fortune 5 Sign of De Soto told police he saw a white man walk away from his 2004 Chevrolet Silverado 4500, which is owned by the company. At first, the man thought the tool box had been rummaged through because various tools were lying on the ground next to the pickup. However, it was later determined that $1,819 worth of tools were stolen, the report said.
As of March 7, none of the tools had been recovered and no arrests had been made, Lt. Clinton Wooldridge said. Anyone with information about the incident should call Arnold Police at 636-296-3204.
