A reward of up to $1,000 was offered Friday for information that leads to the arrest of whoever broke into a San Diego Gas & Electric location in Mission Valley and stole several drones and related equipment.

The small remote controlled aircraft, monitors and other items worth about $125,000 were taken from the utility’s complex on Friars Road near Fenton Parkway in the early morning hours of Aug. 2, according to San Diego police and Crime Stoppers.

Authorities said whoever took the equipment dug under a fence then somehow gained access to SDG&E’s Telecom building.

Anyone with additional information on the case was asked to call police at (858) 495-7900. Anonymous tips can be submitted by calling Crime Stoppers at (888) 580-8477, or contacting the agency via email at sdcrimestoppers.org.
