TULSA, Okla. — Tulsa police are investigating after thieves allegedly stole thousands of dollars in tools and equipment from Habitat for Humanity.
Organization officials told FOX23 someone broke into a storage container overnight and got away with supplies worth $5,000-$7,000.
Officials said the theft is a huge loss. The nonprofit runs off of donations and will need to use donor money to replace the supplies. The theft also puts them behind on their projects. It will create a domino effect when starting new buildings.
The supplies were taken from a work site in the Kendall Whittier neighborhood. It’s the same work site FOX23 first told you about when consumer adviser Clark Howard came to visit and helped get the project off the ground.
All the tools have “HFH” branded into them. Officials ask people to be on the lookout for the tools.
