An employee of Collier Construction Company said overnight someone stole 20 sheets of sub flooring and 100 2x6x16 planks of lumber. He said this was from a construction site and the materials were on the ground outside of a house under construction. Collier Construction is building a new subdivision on Camber Hill, which runs off the 3200 block of Hixson Pike. A watch was created as no material should be going out.
