ST. GEORGE — Police are searching for a burglar responsible for breaking into a construction site in St. George Sunday morning and making off with thousands of dollars’ worth of tools from three different construction companies.
At 7 a.m. Sunday, employees arrived at a St. George construction site located at 3950 S. River Road and found that a lock on the front fence had been cut, St. George Police Officer Lona Trombley said.
“Several construction trailers were broken into, resulting in thousands of dollars in tools stolen,” Trombley said, adding:
There were three construction companies who were victims, but they don’t want their names released.
Trombley said she did not have specifics about what is being built at the construction site.
Detectives responded to the site Sunday and processed the scene. An investigation into the theft is ongoing, police said Monday.
Anyone with information about the case may call the St. George Police Department at 435-627-4300.
