MARIN ROTO-ROOTER VEHICLE STOLEN AND NEEDS OUR HELP!
Last month Marin Builders member Marin Roto-Rooter had one of their company vehicles stolen right from their parking lot during business hours.

They have a clear video of the entire vehicle theft and we are hoping that someone might recognize the get-a-way truck or person who stole the van which may help the Novato Police locate the people involved. We understand that there has been a rash of equipment thefts of local business and if this video and our story are seen, it might help connect some dots.
