ST. LOUIS — St. Louis police are investigating a break-in at an old court building that was discovered after an Occupy St. Louis protest Thursday.
The St. Louis Post-Dispatch reports protesters held a rally and march through downtown Thursday, and then that night some unfurled two large banners off the top of the former Municipal Courts building. The banners read "Occupy" and "Everywhere."
A police spokeswoman said Saturday that the break-in was reported the morning after the demonstration. She said someone cut a chain from the building's door and apparently went inside.
The mayor's spokeswoman, Kara Bowlin, said city officials think the protesters were responsible for the break-in.
Occupy St. Louis members began their protest against corporate greed Oct. 1 and camped downtown for weeks before police removed their tents.
