Edmonton police are looking for the owners of a massive collection of stolen tools recovered recently in northeast Edmonton.

Police searched a home on Nov. 24th, seizing 166 power tools and other contractor items.

The tools include:

  • 4 generators
  • 7 air compressors
  • 18 drills
  • 11 hammer drills
  • 6 impact drivers
  • 10 reciprocating saws
  • 8 circular saws
  • 3 mitre saws
  • 5 chainsaws
  • 7 air nailers
  • 4 grinders
  • 6 bicycles

"We’ve been able to return some of the property to its rightful owners through serial numbers and police reports," said Sgt. Jason Altmiks, with the northeast division.

"It’s a reminder to tradespeople and homeowners to record the serial numbers and mark or engrave their tools, and to file a police report if they are stolen," he said.

Officers have set up a special e-mail account for public inquiries about the tools.

Owners can obtain any of the items they believe is theirs by sending a detailed description — item, brand name, model, colour, serial number — with contact information to stolentools@edmontonpolice.ca.
