Tuesday, August 4, 2020, Assistant Chief Mark Rains spoke to an employee of Donnie’s Paint and Body who reported the business had been broken into the previous night.
Items taken from the business include: a computer tablet, two window switches, and a sensor. The vehicle parts were still packaged and new. The total worth of these items were $751.15.
The employee stated that they received a call from the O’Reilly’s Auto Part Store in regards to the parts.
An O’Reilly’s employee said a man claiming to be the owner’s “grandson” brought the three missing parts to the store requesting a cash refund.
