On the morning of August 9, 2015, shortly after 6:00 AM, at least two unknown suspects broke into two construction storage containers, located at 812 Lynn Garden Drive in Kingsport. Over $15,000 in Snap-On and Mac tools, along with assorted vehicle parts and heavy equipment batteries, were stolen during the burglary.
