Little story about the power tool (1) [2013-11-04]

 

 

ChuanBen -- The administrators and volunteers for Central Berkshire Habitat for Humanity are disappointed, but not daunted after someone stole the power tools from one of their home building projects.
 
"This is the first time in our 21 years we've had an incident," said Carolyn Valli, Central Berkshire Habitat's executive director.
 
"This build will also be our first fully handicap-accessible house, which is more expensive and makes [the incident] more upsetting," she said.

The organization's regular crew of volunteers discovered the tools were gone when they showed up Wednesday morning to work on the house, located at 166 Dewey Ave., according to Valli. This included power drills, impact screwdrivers and Sawzall power hand-cutters.
 
"The strange thing about it was they stole the tools, which are cordless, but they didn't steal the chargers and batteries," said Valli.
 
She said she believes the tools could have been stolen over the weekend.
 
Though students from Taconic High School are on-site Mondays, Tuesdays, Thursdays and Fridays to work, they bring their own tools.
 
"They wouldn't have noticed anything missing because they don't go into the basement where our tools were stored," she said.
