Suspected to have taken place in the very early morning hours of Sunday July 13th the robbery has awakened a myriad of suspicions as to who would have robbed the manufacturing facility that employees roughly 30 welders, carpenters, plumbers, electricians, and laborers.
"It's a big hit to us and our operation with all of this missing equipment. I hope our stolen property is recovered quickly to reduce the impact to our operation." stated Quality Manager, Tim Hopkins. "We're a tight-knit crew and we have some ideas but we don't know anything with regards to who broke in and stole all of this stuff."
Working with the Raceland/Worthington Police Department a list of stolen items including a wide range of tools used for the modification of ISO shipping containers has been given and security camera footage located at the Ashland Regional Airport are currently under review.
"Whoever it was they must have been in a hurry because they dumped out a bunch of our 45 gallon trash cans and filled them with stuff to steal", said Mike Nichols, Manager of Manufacturing. "They must have transported the trash cans full of stolen goods with some dollies we also know are missing. They got a lot of welding supplies, power tools, and a 32" Flat Screen TV that was used for trade shows."
