Chesterton Police are investigating the burglary last week of Jim’s Auto at 100 Brown Ave.

According to police, sometime between 7:10 p.m. Wednesday, Jan. 18, and 9 a.m. Thursday, Jan. 19, someone entered the business and removed a large assortment of tools: a Maxipress auto scanner, a Lincoln welder, an impact wrench, a tool and die set, a ball joint press set, and a hydraulic press set.

Police put the total loss at $7,610.

No signs of forced entry were found at the business, police said. The last employee to leave on Wednesday evening, however, did advise investigators that he may have left a door at the rear of the shop accidentally unlocked. “That door leads to a common area of the building where any one of the other tenants could gain access to the shop,” police said.
