Someone broke into the Whiteville City Garage and stole more than $6,000 worth of equipment over the weekend.
City workers discovered the thefts Monday morning, according to Whiteville Police. Two chainsaws, a pole saw, a blower, and multiple string trimmers were among the items taken.
Entry to the garage was gained by someone cutting a hole in a fence at the Main Street property, then battering or cutting locks from trailers and buildings inside.
The incident is under investigation.
