New Braunfels police said more than $10,000 in equipment was reportedly stolen from a construction trailer between Thursday night and Friday morning.

David Ferguson, New Braunfels Police Department communications coordinator, said a variety of power tools that included drills, saws and other items, were reported missing from a portable trailer in the 2600 block of Farm-to-Market Road 306 around 11:30 a.m. on Friday.

“Electrical crews were in the location working on a water pump station for New Braunfels Utilities. The contractor doing the job for NBU reported the theft occurred between 4:30 p.m. on Thursday and when they arrived back early Friday morning,” Ferguson said.

Seventeen items totaling $10,815 were reported missing from the CONEX container, Ferguson said. Damage to the trailer was estimated at another $400, he added.
