WAYLAND, Mass. (AP) - Police in Wayland are investigating the theft of $1,500 worth of tools and equipment from a Habitat for Humanity worksite in town.

The director of development for Habitat for Humanity of MetroWest/Greater Worcester tells The MetroWest Daily News (http://bit.ly/1gx9Ntw ) that the theft from a trailer occurred sometime after midnight Thursday. The trailer’s lock was smashed.

A generator, an air compressor, and tools were reported stolen.

The home-building charity is seeking donations to replace the equipment.

Habitat is building four affordable homes at one site in town for $720,000, with much of the labor volunteered.

The project was expected to be completed in late fall or early winter.
