Tools, keys and more taken from DPW

Aug. 23, 2010

Tools, a city map and keys to a dump truck were taken from the Wauwatosa Public Works Department building at 11100 W. Walnut Road last week.

According to Wauwatosa police:

An electrical department employee noticed a ground fault locator missing from his truck, which had been parked inside between 3:30 p.m. Aug. 17 and 9 a.m. Aug. 18.

After checking with co-workers, he noticed more than $400 in tools - some that belonged to the city and others from his personal collection - had been taken.

A second employee reported his tools, valued at $333, a city map and the dump truck keys were also missing.

The DPW yard is locked overnight.
