Police looking for owners of tools
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 email@example.com.
