Theft on construction job sites are costing the industry over 1 billion dollars every year. Whether it is the tools and materials, contractors need to get a job done, or appliances and copper tubing, construction sites have become a jackpot for criminals.
“Simple security measures and practices can help keep jobsites protected,” said Mike Bykowski, said in an article in Concrete Construction. “After hours, construction sites can become an easy target for theft and vandalism, but there are measures that professionals can take to ensure expensive tools and equipment are kept safe.”
Most of these thefts are happening on the weekend, according to the Great American Insurance Group.
St. Johns County Sheriff’s Office Commander Chuck Mulligan told News 4, thieves are taking advantage of the fact the county is growing exponentially. “They are using large cargo trucks, potential lifts. They are loading all these appliances up at one time and they’re rolling out with them, and some individuals are doing this as an income source.”
