Sheriff’s Office

Universal Forest Products’ plant manager called deputies on Wednesday morning to report the theft of an impact driver, which is a power tool, according to a sheriff’s office incident report.

Surveillance video from the Rowesville facility showed an employee leaving work at 4:30 p.m. Tuesday but returning at 8:15 p.m.

The video shows the employee going to his locker to get his coat, the report said. The employee allegedly concealed “the power tool that was sitting on a nearby table in his coat before exiting the building.”

The DeWalt 20-volt impact driver is valued at $200.

In an unrelated report, a Cordova woman called deputies to her Mack Road home at 4:06 p.m. Wednesday to report a theft.

She told deputies that she accidently left her vehicle unlocked when she brought in some groceries on Monday.

She said that while her vehicle was unlocked, someone stole her Michael Kors wallet containing three lottery tickets, a driver’s license, credit cards and cash.

The total value of the stolen items is $586.
