• At 10:38 a.m., Saturday, May 20, a Knox County Sheriff’s Office unit was dispatched to an Outlet Drive address on reports of a burglary.
A witness and a representative of BEA Construction said all workers had left the night prior around 7:30 p.m. and returned that morning to the job site. The witness also said when they arrived, he noticed an “enclosed box trailer had been broken into overnight,” the report stated.
Upon inspection, (that victim) said “the unknown suspect had broken two locking mechanisms and two locking rods, valuing approximately $500, to make entry into the trailer. Once inside the trailer, the suspect took a red Milwaukee brand Portaband ($200 value) and Hammer Drill ($250 value) from inside.”
The only known identifier at the time of this report is black spray paint on the case of the hammer drill.
“The suspect also made entry into a door, also on the east side of the building, that was unlocked,” the report also stated. While inside the building, the witness reported they had left a Dewalt chop saw on top of some scaffolding and it was now gone. He also said they had to purchase a new saw in order to complete their work for the day, and it cost him about $230 to replace.
It is unknown the exact time of the occurrence or any identifiers of the suspect. There are currently no cameras on the job site.
