Thieves Steal Thousands of Dollars in Construction Tools
By: Chris Jones
(KUTV) Unified Police say they need your help after a group of thieves make off with tens of thousands of dollars in construction materials and tools from a construction site in an exclusive Holladay neighborhood last weekend. 

According to police, the crooks driving several cars including a Ford Taurus, a Green Chevy, a blue Ford F-150, and a Blue GMC pickup with what appears to be a some sort of logo on the door of the truck.

Dave Keller is in the construction business, specializing in copper gutters and roofing; he says he left a U-Haul truck filled with materials.  Another man working on the same project left his utility trailer behind over the weekend. 

Police say beginning Friday night, the drivers of those 4 cars spent the next two days, likely casing the construction site, looking for the most valuable materials to steal.  Saturday night, we are told, that's when they finally decided to follow through, by driving the U-Haul off the lot, and attaching that utility trailer to one of the trucks and driving off.

Police estimate the total amount stolen at about $50,000.  If you have any information about the heist, give police a call.
