NORTHSIDE, OH (FOX19) - Surveillance video captured a ghostly image at the Easterseals Building Value resale store in Northside overnight Sunday.

Management said suspects were about 200 feet away from their surveillance cameras inside their trucks busting out windows and dome lights in order to get at the tools inside.

"Hammers, screw drivers and shovels, but then we had some large portable generators and jack hammers, " said Director of Building Value David Rich.

He said around $9,000 worth of tools were stolen.

The vandals cut a whole through a fence to steal the items through.

Now, the company which provides job training to people who have been chronically unemployed needs help.

"How are we going to afford to re-out ourselves with what we have in the pipeline right now," Rich said.

The organization is renting tools right now because they don't have any more.

Police ask if you have any information to contact them.
