A Tulsa business is counting its losses after a big burglary. Someone broke into the Fastenal Company, stealing thousands of dollars in drills, saws, accessories and a company truck and trailer.

The thieves defeated the alarm system and seemed to know exactly what they wanted, which has happened in many commercial burglaries in the past several months.

Fastenal's burglary happened at an especially bad time. Fastenal Store Manager Mark Long: "You don't expect it. This is especially with the new layout of the store and adding inventory so we could increase sales and they take it away from you."

Long expects the thieves to pawn many of the high dollar Bosch drills and saws.
