Nova Scotia Power says visiting work crews, who have come to the Halifax area to help with power restoration efforts, have fallen victim to theft.
The utlity says equipment was stolen from locked E. Holland and K-Line trucks that were parked at hotels while the workers from New Brunswick and Ontario got some rest.
Those hotels were in the Kearney Lake area, Burnside, on the Bedford Highway and in Stellarton. The equipment taken were Stihl chainsaws and Milwuakee drill kits.
The utlity asking anyone who sees this equipment being sold to call police.
Nova Scotia Power says it's beyond grateful crews from out-of-province have come to help recover from the impact of Post-Tropical Cyclone Dorian, and calls these thefts "really disappointing".
