The victim advised someone stole a Black & Decker 7 1/4” circular saw with a laser guide about a month ago — he advised he hasn’t made a report with the sheriff’s office. The victim took the deputy to another shed where he advised two Black & Decker 18-volt cordless drills and a Black & Decker four-inch angle grinder with a cement cutting blade were taken. A smaller Black & Decker drill was stolen from a “small building.” The deputy took several photos of the crime scene and the area.
