The following information was released by Habitat for Humanity OC.
Fifteen brand new tankless water heaters are missing from the Habitat for Humanity of Orange County construction site at 6122 Lincoln Avenue in Cypress.
The water heaters were stored in a locked metal storage container, on a fenced and locked construction site. The padlock for the storage container has not yet been recovered.
Habitat purchased the Takagi TK3 tankless water heaters, valued at $12,000, in order to install them in the 15 new homes soon to be under construction on the site. These high efficiency water heaters were selected and purchased in order to provide energy cost savings to the families who will purchase the homes.
“When we stopped by the site today we were shocked to discover that the brand new water heaters were missing,” said Mark Korando, Senior Vice President, Habitat for Humanity of Orange County. “We would very much like to have them back. If someone would please drop the water heaters off at our construction office at 1307 East St. Gertrude Place (Building B) in Santa Ana, we’ll happily receive them, no questions asked.”
Anyone with information about the missing water heaters is asked to contact Mark Korando at 714-434-6200 extension 214 or [email protected].
