A trailer containing $12,000 worth of tools was stolen from a Habitat for Humanity construction site over the weekend, the organization told TownSquareBuzz.com. The theft took place between Saturday night and Sunday morning at 1208 Standifer in east McKinney. The trailer (shown above) is a white, 14-foot tapered trailer labeled with a logo entitled “Richardson Interfaith: with license tag number 50385N.
Construction of a new home for a single mother and her two daughters had just begun on Saturday, North Collin County Habitat for Humanity confirmed to TSB on Monday. The trailer was used by the Habitat for Humanity volunteers for tool storage.
According to an itemized list from Habitat for Humanity, the trailer itself is valued at $5,000. The trailer contained various tools including: table saws, circular saws, palm nailers, air hoses, drills, hammers, levels, ladders, air compressors, framing guns, assorted hand tools, and many other tools as well. All of the tools were engraved with “NCCHFH.”
The theft was discovered when a volunteer house leader, Larry Hoffman, visited the job site on Sunday morning with his wife to show her the progress of the construction.
