Arc of Anchorage asks for help catching thieves
An Anchorage nonprofit that provides services for people with intellectual and developmental disabilities says it has been the target of theft — again.
The Arc of Anchorage is asking for the public’s help tracking down two people who stole some tools from the organization Tuesday night.
Ian Casey, The Arc’s operations manager, says two people broke a window on a maintenance truck. They came back twice throughout the night and stole power tools from the truck’s cab.
The thieves also took a duffel bag of hand tools that they dropped in the parking lot.
“When stuff like this happens it’s funds we really want to have going towards the people that we serve,” Casey said. “And it has to go towards things like fixing windows, repurchasing things and adding security, which can be very expensive.”
This isn’t the first time things have been swiped from the organization. In December, donated goods were stolen from The Arc.
