It happened sometime early Wednesday morning at Sanchez Auto Repair Shop near Annadale and Academy.

Shop owners say two diagnostic scanning machines taken in the heist are worth $36,000. Mechanics are still tallying the tools they say are missing. The thieves were very particular about what they took with them.

Al Tafolla said, "It had to be a person that knows the place real well, it definitely did. Because they knew where to come first, where to break the wires. Once the wires are cut they are home free. They could be here for hours."

Employees say the alarm wires were cut and several doors were pried open during the burglary. $700.00 in cash was also taken from a locked register. Sanger Police are following all leads to try to track down who is responsible.
