Tools missing from woodworking shop; brother-in-law blamed

By Max Fontaine | Hard-wood beat reporter

Bass Lake-area home-carpentry/woodworking enthusiast Chris Welch has filed a missing-tools report with Bass Lake Police Authority.

Welch, age withheld, said several essential items were stolen last weekend from his garage-based shop, including a Black & Decker JS660 Jig Saw with Smart Select Dial, a circular saw and “a nice router I just got for Father’s Day.”

Welch has accused his brother-in-law for the thefts.

“Call it a hunch,” Welch suggested.

Welch’s spouse/sister of the brother-in-law could not be reached for hunch-verification.

Preliminary investigation by Bass Lake Police Authority has “only just begun,” according to a custodial worker at the precinct who answered the phone around 10 p.m.
