Houston police are investigating a business burglary at Farris Sales and Service, 418 S. Sam Houston Blvd.
Eight pieces of equipment – mostly chain saws – were taken along with some change.
Entry was gained by prying open a sliding garage door on the south side of the building. The suspects then apparently reached inside and removed an unlocked padlock from the hasp, allowing the door to be pulled outward.
An attempt had been made to break several windows on the east side of the business, but was thwarted by bars over the windows.
The crime occurred sometime after noon on Sunday. It was discovered Monday morning.
The total loss has not been determined.
