A specially designed tool used to precisely cut through metal was stolen from Sam's Club on John R. Rice Boulevard, and authorities have little to go by in nabbing the thief.
The Hobart Airforce Plasma Cutter was valued at $1,599, according to Sam's Club management.
After the subject made it out of the store, he hopped into the driver's seat of an older model Chevrolet Blazer. Authorities reported that the SUV appeared to already be running when the man got into the vehicle and drove away. Security camera's show that the Blazer was wither tan or silver in color.
Police have yet to determine the subject's name and were not able to obtain a license plate number on the getaway vehicle.
Again, the theft was valued at over $1,500.
