A construction supervisor reported that between 1730 hours on 9/20 and 0700 hours on 9/21 two tool boxes containing approximately $10,000 in tools were taken from their secure construction site. The suspect(s) unlatched the fencing to gain entry.
A BART contractor reported that three separate equipment storage containers at the Whipple Yard had been burglarized sometime between the hours of 1700 on 8/13 and 0700, today's date. An unknown suspect(s) cut the lock off of the main gate to access the yard and then proceeded to cut the locks to the three containers. A Ford F-650 flatbed truck with a small Bob Cat on the bed was taken. The investigating officer took photos and collected the locks as evidence. The containers were unable to be processed because contractors had already contaminated the scene. At the time of this entry, it appears that there is a few thousand dollars in property loss. The truck and Bob Cat were later located and a stolen/recovery report was taken.
