Thieves hit SE Kansas library twice

KSAL StaffDecember 4, 2013

Somebody in southeast Kansas doesn’t understand the concept of borrowing from a public library.

The Cherokee County News-Advocate reports burglars broke into the Columbus Public Library twice in the past week, making off with cash and computers.

Columbus Police Department spokeswoman Ann Sharp says the first break-in occurred sometime between the library’s closing the day before Thanksgiving and its reopening on Saturday. The burglars entered through a basement window and stole money and a computer.

Library personnel returned to work again Monday to find that thieves had again broken in through the same window and stolen several more computers.

The amount of cash taken has not been disclosed. Sharp says police have no suspects bur are investigating leads.
