Delaware State Police are investigating a burglary at the Sussex County Habitat for Humanity in which almost $5,000 of tools was stolen.
According to Habitat officials, the burglary before Labor Day weekend was the first in the organization's 22 years of operation.
Someone broke into a construction tool trailer and took mitre saws, pneumatic nailers, a compressor, a table saw, a circular saw, scaffolding and a generator, officials said.
Police had no further information on the burglary.
Sussex County Habitat for Humanity is asking for donations to help offset the cost of buying new tools.
