Someone stole tools worth several thousand dollars from city-owned greenhouses overnight, police said.
The theft was detected at about 7:30 a.m. Wednesday from greenhouses in the 1700 block of South Hydraulic, Lt. Doug Nolte said.
Someone cut a hole in the fence surrounding the greenhouses after 6 p.m. on Tuesday, went into multiple greenhouses and took “a large quantity of power tools and hand tools,” Nolte said.
The stolen tools have a cumulative value that exceeds $5,000, he said.
