Burglars Steal $11,000 Worth of Tools from Auto Shop; Also Take Items from Owner’s Family

A Springfield auto shop is asking for the public’s help in finding the burglars that stole thousands of dollars in tools and other items of personal value to the owners.

Fast Stop Tire Shop on West Chestnut Expressway reported the burglary on Friday morning and is now without many tools they need to repair vehicles.

In addition to stealing a large amount of Snap-On Tools and a laptop computer, the criminals also stole a go-kart that belongs to the grandson of the shop owner (pictured above). The 8-year-old was repairing the cart with his grandfather so he could go racing with his family.

The thieves also stole the drum set (pictured above) belonging to the owner’s daughter, which was the first drum set that the owner bought for her.

Anyone with information about the stolen items is asked to call the Springfield Police Department at 417-864-1810.
