Medical plaza robbed

July 18, 2003


Police are investigating burglaries at nine offices inside a medical complex.

The forced-entry burglaries at Lawrence Medical Plaza, 1112 W. Sixth St., occurred sometime late Tuesday or early Wednesday and caused more than $5,500 in damage to doors, safes and cabinets, according to police reports. The burglar or burglars also made off with more than $700 in cash, but police said there were no reports of missing prescription drugs.

Prescription pads inside podiatrist Mark Taylor's cabinet inside Suite 104 were left untouched, office manager Cheri Taylor said. The only damage to Taylor's office was to the main door and a cabinet, and Cheri Taylor said the office wasn't missing any money because the cash bag was empty.

She said she thought whoever broke in to the offices had entered while the building still was open. Taylor said the building's manager was talking with a security company about adding new safeguards.

"I think we're going to put some cameras in every office and maybe individual alarms for each suite," she said.

Radiologic Professional Services in Suite 110 apparently got the worst of the damage, according to reports. An employee told police $120 in cash was missing and that the burglary caused $4,000 in damage to furniture.

The building is owned by H&S; Holdings, according to Douglas County tax records.
