Thieves took about $19,000 worth of tools in just 3 minutes!
Early Sunday morning, Amador County Sheriff’s deputies were sent to check out a business alarm at a household equipment store.
Within three minutes of the alarm sounding, deputies arrived at Guy’s Saw Shop and found the gate open, glass doors smashed, and the business empty.
The owner and investigators reviewed surveillance video and watched as a man opened the gate, guide a white Econoline truck into location, then four men smashed a door and take chain saws, trimmers, generators, hand tools and a pressure washer.
All told, the stolen equipment totaled about $19,000.
Anyone with any information regarding this or any other crime is asked to contact the Amador County Sheriff’s Office at (209) 223-6500 or the Amador County Secret Witness Program at (209) 223-4900.
