DAYTON, Ohio (WDTN) – A utility worker was surprised to see some missing tools in his work truck.
James Shields called police to the University of Dayton’s basketball arena parking lot Wednesday afternoon.
Shields explained to the officers he was parked on the south side of the building after lunch.
The side compartments on the work truck were not locked.
Shields finished up a job inside UD area and returned to his work truck at about 3:10 p.m. when he noticed part of a pipe was on the ground.
He took a closer look at his truck and saw someone took $3 thousand worth of tools.
The company’s name was clearly marked on the truck and tools.
