Thieves managed to steal thousands of dollars in tools from a construction site by creatively using plywood. Police say that over $3,000 was stolen out of a locked shed at a construction site around the 11000 Block of South Cottonwood Drive. Reports say the thieves built a plywood wall around the front of the shed to hide the blowtorch that they used to break in. This all happened sometime during the Christmas holiday.

This is not the first time this season that tools have been stolen from this area but the tools have serial numbers so there is hope they will be returned in time.
