Two Local Businesses Commended For Helping Victim of Theft
A reader contacted us to commend two local businesses on helping regain stolen tools. Here’s the email we got on February 15:
We are remodeling an apartment that we own in Old Town. A little after 9am our guy on the job site called to tell us that the drill he had just been using was stolen. While he was upstairs a thief stole the drill downstairs. My husband immediately called Humboldt Fasteners, where we had purchased it and got the serial number. He left for work and I started calling all the pawn shops and then the police, yes in that order.
Just after my husband arrived at the job site the police came to take a report. While he was talking to the police I was calling the last pawn shop that opened at 10am. I was on the phone with the pawn shop when my other phone rang, it was Eureka Trading who I had called first, they had our drill. They also had our router that we didn’t even realize was missing yet.
I immediately called my husband who was still talking with the police and within an hour of our tools being stolen we had them back. The pawn shop was able to get the ID and address of the thief, so who knows maybe he will even get [cited] for his antics.
Thanks to Humboldt Fasteners for keeping serial numbers and thanks to Eureka Trading for getting our tools back.
