Lincoln Police are investigating after burglars cut through the exterior wall of a local equipment supplier and stole about $15,000 worth of power tools over the weekend.

Officer Erin Spilker said officers responded to an alarm at Midwest Unlimited shortly after midnight Sunday. 

When officers arrived at the business near Northwest 18th and O streets, they found items scattered throughout the warehouse, Spilker said. 

Chain saws, concrete saws, trimmers and pruners were among items missing. The burglars caused about $1,000 in damage when they cut through the building's wall. 

An investigation into the incident is ongoing.
