 An expensive piece of surveying equipment was stolen from a construction company office during a downtown burglary that took place sometime over the weekend. The $35,000 device belongs to North American Mechanical, Inc., which is one of the contractors working on an apartment project underway at the corner of Broom St. and W. Johnson St.  The stolen unit is used to digitally map buildings under construction so workers know where to install hearing ducts and other infrastructure.  Anyone with information is asked to contact Madison Area Crime Stoppers at 266-6014.
