On July 26th, at around 1:45pm, contractors saw three black males park on Stratford in a black 2015 Kia Sedona with a Texas temporary tag of 0775G97.  The suspects ran to the contractor’s truck and began stealing their tools from the truck bed and inside.  One of the contractors ran to his car and followed the Sedona and collided with it.  As the Sedona continued fleeing down West Southlake Boulevard, it hit the curb and blew two tires, almost colliding with another car.  The suspects bailed from the car and fled around 261 East Southlake Boulevard.

Officers arrived and took statements and received a sketch of one of the suspects.  The contractors were able to identify their tools in the Sedona and reclaimed all of their property:  three drills, a backpack, a tool bag and circular saw, and a lunch box.  Officers also found multiple credit cards and other property inside the car from alleged different offenses.

The suspects were not located but detectives are working the case.
