Someone stole several thousand dollars in tools and copper wire at Moduline Industries in Penticton and Crimestoppers wants to nail the thief.

On April 27 someone cut the fence at the site, snuck in and made off with the loot. Two days before this event an unknown male was allegedly casing the site from a golf course. He was dressed in construction clothing, wore a tool belt and had a reflective vest and a red hoodie.

When confronted he dropped some copper wire and fled on a black mountain bike. A red set of wire cutters was also found.
