Break-In At Morgantown Mission
According to the Morgantown Police Department thieves broke in to the Morgantown Mission sometime on the night of Friday, December 30th. Officer John Ford said the back door of the Mission was more than likely forced open with a crowbar. The thieves then used the crowbar to break into the Director’s office where they forced open a filing cabinet and stole the Mission’s money bag. Ford said that Director Garry McKinney hasn’t determined exactly how much money was taken, but that it was in excess of $300. Damage was minimal to the outside door but the inside door was heavily damaged as was the filing cabinet.
The investigation is ongoing. Ford declined to comment about suspects. Anyone with any information about the break-in should contact the Morgantown Police Department at 526-2040.
