Police investigating theft at Board of Elections office in St. Louis

Monday, February 22, 2010 | 10:49 a.m. CST

ST. LOUIS — Police are reviewing surveillance cameras for clues to a break-in at the Board of Elections office in St. Louis.

Election officials told St. Louis television station KSDK the office's alarm system had been turned off for maintenance work. Thursday morning, a thief took advantage of that, breaking in without detection.

Items taken include a laptop, a satellite radio deck, a radio, a TV converter box and a small amount of cash.

Police are now reviewing several surveillance cameras throughout the building to see if any of them may have caught the theft.
