SHEPHERDSTOWN, W.Va. - Shepherdstown Police Chief Cecil Arnold said a rear door has been reinforced and he is looking into installing a burglar alarm after a thief broke into the police department and the mayor's office earlier this month.
About 8 a.m. on Jan. 9, Arnold arrived at the office and discovered the rear door had been pried open by a crowbar or similar type of tool
"It kind of makes your day start off on the wrong foot," Arnold said.
Inside, he discovered two desks had been broken into at the police department side of Town Hall. About $2,000 in cash had been in one of the desks from fines from Police Court and from the sale of parking permits.
