AMMON — A local company is offering a $1,500 reward after employees say tools were stolen from a work van.

Workers with Bell Hardwood Floors found over $9,000 worth of tools missing from their green GMC van Tuesday after returning from the Labor Day holiday weekend.

“We had an employee call around 9 a.m. when he was getting something out of his van and he realized another van had been broken into,” said Brittany Lynn Crumley, spokeswoman for Bell Hardwood Floors. “They broke in through a window.”

The company suspects the thief used a tool to open the pop-open window to unlock the door. Crumley says among the stolen items are personal tools owned by the employees.

“We are really upset that this has happened,” Crumley said. “The tools and equipment that were taken are used everyday for our workers to help bring a paycheck home to their families.”
