There Goes My Roof

With all the storm damage we have seen this summer, there are a lot of roofs still being replaced. As I am sure you have seen around your neighborhood, contractors often place supplies for upcoming jobs on the driveways of the homes. These supplies can become targets for thieves, and homeowners may not notice them disappearing.

Recently, Officers took a report of a theft that involved these circumstances. The homeowner witnessed two Hispanic males arrive in a beat up white Chevy pickup truck. The homeowner saw them load a bunch of roofing supplies and leave. He thought it was strange, but he did not know if the contractor needed the material for another job. The homeowner called the contractor who told him his employees did not take the supplies.

The homeowner then called police and reported the theft. The passenger of the truck was described as a “skinny” Hispanic male. The driver of the truck was described as a stocky Hispanic male, 5`8, 220 lb, medium black hair, and had the word "Mexican" tattooed across the front of his chest.

The homeowner believed the truck was possibly a 1990 - 1992 model Chevrolet with a partial Wyandotte County Kansas tag of 084-D___.

Anyone with information on the identity of these two suspects is asked to call the Overland Park Police Department at 913-344-8750 or the TIPS HOTLINE at 816-474-TIPS.
