Grove City Division of Police officers responded Feb. 6 to two reports of construction trailers being broken into or tampered with at a construction site in the 5500 block of Hoover Road.
A representative of a Hilliard company said construction tools and equipment, valued at a total of $4,000, had been taken from three of the company's trailers. Locks were cut on each trailer to gain entry.
An employee of a Blacklick company said about $500 in damage was done to the locking mechanism on one of the business' trailers. Officers did not believe entry was gained to the trailer because no items were taken or appeared to have been disturbed, according to the report.
