Thieves strike Habitat for Humanity in Richmond

Fort Bend's Habitat for Humanity is putting construction on hold after someone broke into their storage shed in Richmond and stole $5,000 worth of equipment.

"We were going to start construction again the first week of September, but now we're going to have to do some fundraising in order to get the equipment replaced," said Susan Phipps Carr with Habitat for Humanity. "It's a lot of equipment."

Carr says the money they have to raise to buy the new equipment will divert funds from building more homes. She says air compressors, nail guns and other equipment crucial to home construction are missing and they would like the items returned.
