Central Precinct officers say a Medeco brand key-cutting machine, specialized locksmith tools and cash were taken during a commercial burglary in the 700 block of Southeast Grand Avenue.

Officers were dispatched to the scene at 6:50 a.m. on Monday, March 30, according to a news release.

"The suspect cut through a wall to get in causing significant structure damage," police said. "The entry appeared to be made by professional tools."

Key-cutting machines aren't available for everyone to buy on Amazon. Police say this brand must be specially ordered from the manufacturer.
