Steve Wiskur the branch manager at Clark's Tool was just beginning to assess the damage to a front door when I arrived. "They took quite a bit of smaller items" he said. "This has happened before, but it has been several years." He said he had not taken inventory yet and didn't have an approximate dollar amount for the items that were taken.

Shawnee Police say the suspect's vehicle is a white, early 2000's model Chevrolet pick-up truck with a full size bed.
