TOLEDO, OH (Toledo News Now) -

Police are on the hunt for thieves targeting Habitat for Humanity building sites. Two locations were hit Thursday April 24 night, both on Gribbin Lane.

The executive director for Maumee Valley Habitat for Humanity says the crime is hard to take.

"We're just really frustrated by it," said Michael McIntyre.

McIntyre says the thieves stole copper pipes, cabinets and electrical wire.

"I just can't imagine that there is that much value that is taken with the copper and they grabbed a couple cabinets out of one unit," said McIntyre.

The homes are being renovated by volunteers so they were vacant during the time of the burglaries. Mcintyre says about $3,000 worth of damage has been done.

"We have to be good stewards with all the funds that we do have and this will increase the cost and the timelines to do that and this will make it a little bit more difficult," said McIntyre.

The thieves took the copper piping without turning off the water, leading to flooding. McIntyre says these types of crimes are common throughout the city, but he has a message for the community.

"Call the cops get somebody out there. That could be your own home, so don't stay quite when you see this happening because we have to put a stop to this," said McIntyre.

Police are still investigating the two break-ins. If you have any information, please contact police.
