According to the Bozeman Police Department Facebook page, there has been a rash of construction site thefts in the Gallatin Valley. Here's how you can protect yourself and your personal belongings;

"The Bozeman Police Department would like to remind those in the construction industry to take precautions to protect tools and equipment. Start by placing specific, difficult to remove marks on tools. Keep an inventory of all serial numbers and make sure to keep all tools in a secure place that is difficult for a thief to get to."

 

 

The police department also urges anyone approached by someone looking to sell tools to contact police and to report any suspicious activity around construction site areas.
