Library broken into, items taken

by Michael Bush -

An overnight break-in was reported at the Altus Public Library this morning. Police let employees into the facility around 9 a.m., after going through the library thoroughly.

It was said that whoever broke in, gained entry through the back door, as well as a window. One employee said that several desks had been gone through, with both personal items and library property being taken.

Among the items found missing were cameras and laptops. The brand new laptop that is used with the libraries 3-D printer was among the items stolen.

The robbers seemed to have intentionally stayed away from areas and offices in the library where there were a lot of windows, but left evidence that could be used to identify them.

The initial call about the break-in was from a passerby. The alarm at the library did not go off.

If you have information about this crime, you can call Crime Stoppers at 482-TIPS and leave anonymous information. If the information you provide leads to the arrest and conviction of a suspect, you could earn a cash reward.
