About $8,000 worth of tools were taken from a self-storage unit in Godfrey, Ill., last week. Investigators with the Madison County Sheriffs Department said someone broke into four units at a self-storage facility located at 7006 Godfrey Road earlier in the week, but nothing was taken.
The thieves returned Friday, broke into the four units again and stole tools from one locker, and clothes, a bed frame and a wooden chest from another. Police believe the thief may not have had the equipment or ability to take the items during the first burglary attempt.
The stolen tools include a belt sander, drill, reciprocating saw, grinder, socket sets and various other tools. Anyone with information can call the anonymous tip line at 618.296.3000.
