Tools taken from truck

Police are seeking help tracking down persons involved with the theft of tools from a parked vehicle early Tuesday morning.

According to a press release by the Juneau Police Department, a woman reported hearing noises outside her home in the 4200 Block of Taku Boulevard at 3:45 a.m. Tuesday. She told officers she saw a vehicle — a light blue Ford Ranger or Chevy S-10 with a canopy — driving away. Her husband later discovered several tools were missing from his vehicle in the driveway.

JPD spokeswoman Erann Kalwara said the vehicle’s owner called police at 7:38 a.m. to report the incident. The missing tools were a Spectra 500 Laser Level, two 20 volt Dewalt drills and a bag containing various small tools. Kalwara said they have a combined estimated value of $1,700.

This was the second vehicle rifling reported in the Mendenhall Valley area, Kalwara said. One day earlier, another vehicle owner reported that his or her vehicle was broken into at 4:49 p.m in the 9300 block of Glacier Avenue.

JPD and the Juneau Crime Line highlighted the case as their “Crime of the Week,” an effort by police to resolve cold cases. Anyone with information can call JPD at 586-0600 or visit juneaucrimeline.com to anonymously report a tip. Those with information may be rewarded with up to $1,000.
