MANZANAR – THEFT OF GOVERNMENT PROPERTY
The National Park Service is seeking—and may pay up to $1000 for—information leading to the arrest and conviction of the person(s) responsible for stealing equipment and tools at Manzanar National Historic Site between September 20 and 21, 2016.
Between 6:30 p.m., Tuesday, September 20, and 6:30 a.m., Wednesday, September 21, unknown persons forcibly entered a locked storage building and stole a trencher, a small trailer, a circular saw and stand, three nail guns, and other power tools valued at more than $19,000.
The tools and equipment are regularly used for preservation and maintenance at Manzanar. Their loss will adversely impact important programs and projects at the site.
Anyone with information is encouraged to contact National Park Service Law Enforcement at (760) 786-3260.
