AMMON — The Bonneville County Sheriff’s Office is seeking information about the theft of tools and a trailer from a construction site.

On Monday, a contractor working on a housing development in the Bridgewater Estates subdivision near Ammon Road and Lincoln Road discovered an enclosed trailer with more than $60,000 in tools missing from the job site, according to a sheriff’s office news release.

The trailer was soon discovered a short distance away but had been emptied of various survey equipment, a generator and tools.

After it was reported to authorities, deputies found several surveillance systems in the neighborhood. The video showed two suspects, believed to be males, driving a silver or gold-colored mid-2000’s extra cab Chevrolet pickup. The truck had hooked onto the trailer at the site and transported it to a separate location. The suspects offloaded tools and items into the pickup, abandoned the trailer, and left the area.

The Bonneville County Sheriff’s Office is asking anyone with information about this or any other crime to contact dispatch at (208) 529-1200 and ask to speak with a deputy. Tips can also be submitted to Crime Stoppers online at www.ifcrime.org, by calling (208) 522-1983, or by using the P3Tips app on your mobile device.
