Release from the RCMP: 

Halifax District RCMP investigates rash of tool thefts, Lower Sackville, N.S.

Last night, just after 2 a.m., suspects entered a van parked in a private driveway on Rankin Dr. in Lower Sackville and removed a number of tools. The suspects loaded the tools into their truck, a dark coloured pick-up truck, and sped away from the scene. Within minutes, RCMP made multiple patrols of the area but were not able to locate the suspects. The tools are believed to be valued at between approximately $7,000 and $10,000, and mostly bear the brand name Dewalt. The tools are also labelled with either the owner’s name or ‘MRS Construction’ in permanent marker. Several items, including the victim’s van, have been seized for forensic examination, and the file remains under investigation.
On Tuesday evening, Halifax District RCMP were also called to investigate two break-ins to outbuildings where tools were stolen. A utility trailer parked at a construction site on Westridge Dr. in Tantallon was broken into, and several Dewalt tools and other brands were stolen. They include:
