NIAGARA FALLS – Thousands of dollars worth of tools were allegedly stolen in a weekend garage break-in reported on Monday.

The 39-year-old man told police that sometime between Friday evening and Monday morning someone broke into his rented garage in the 2700 block of Whitney Avenue and took $4,000 worth of automotive tools. He said he had his initials MAK scratched onto many of his tools for identification.
