  • Habitat for Humanity's trailer full of tools was stolen overnight.
A trailer full of tools was stolen overnight from a Habitat for Humanity St. Louis work site in south city.

The trailer was last seen at 6 p.m. Sunday in the Carondelet neighborhood. By 6 a.m. today, it was gone. The nonprofit posted a plea for information on Facebook, estimating the value of the trailer and tools at $75,000.

"Help us find our tools!" Habitat wrote.

The trailer was parked on the street with the wheels and hitch locked and chained, according to the nonprofit. All the tools were marked "Habitat for Humanity Saint Louis — Not For Sale — HFHSL."

Habitat is asking anyone with information to contact St. Louis Regional CrimeStoppers at 1-866-371-TIPS (8477.)

We welcome tips and feedback. Email the author at or follow on Twitter at @DoyleMurphy.
