Crime Stoppers needs your help in solving the following crime:
Sometime in the early morning hours of Sunday March 31st, a large mechanical shop in the Franklyn River Rd area was broken into and a significant assortment of tools was taken.
Sometime between 1:30 am and noon on Sunday March 31st, an unknown suspect or suspects broke into the large shop. The suspect or suspects then forced their way through a locked door to access a storage room where the tools were kept.

Approximately $30,000 worth of tools were taken.
