Help Brandon Da Silva get back on his feet!

Sometime between Sunday October 11 8pm-1:00pm Monday October 12 (thanksgiving day) a theft took place at Minute Muffler on Ritson Rd. 

Brandon was doing some part time work there and had just moved his personal tools to their garage two weeks prior to the incident. These tools included diagnostic tools, hand tools, torches, drills, automotive paint guns, battery powered tools, a welder and other expensive tools. These tools were loaded and stolen along with a suv that Brandon was repairing. The estimated replacement value is $10,000-$15,000. These are tools that were relatively new and a few were handed down with sentimental value. These are tools that were collected over the years of him being a mechanic and used for enhancing his skills. Brandon spent his hard earned money and his time that he invested in these tools, which are not easily replaceable. 

The vehicle was  later discovered by Brandon after he was aimlessly searching for the car, but unfortunately the tools were not recovered. Brandons hard earned valuables are gone and traded for a selfish abhorrent act, leaving him unable to work on vehicles or anything in that matter. There is no insurance to cover the unfortunate event which has left Brandon to fend for himself. This young man has worked aimlessly over the years to brand himself, and I can attest that he is an exceptionally fair and honest mechanic.

Please help to get brandon back on his feet and some tools in his hands so he can continue to work!
