SPRINGFIELD — The Humane Society of Southwest Missouri is offering a $1,000 reward for information leading to the arrest of anyone responsible for three break-ins at the Springfield shelter in six months.
The agency says the most recent break-in was Monday, when a man threw a rock through a window and tried to get into the safe.
Surveillance cameras installed after the first two burglaries show the man getting into the safe, but it was empty. He escaped with $2.50 from donation cans in the lobby.
Director Darin Landrum says it's heartbreaking and disgusting to have "a weak individual" steal from homeless dogs and cats.
KYTV-TV reports a supporter of the organization has offered the $1,000 reward for information in the case.
