Riley County health department office ransacked

December 6, 2011


Authorities in northeastern Kansas are investigating a burglary that resulted in thousands of dollars' worth of damage at a county building.

Riley County police believe the break-in at the Riley County Health Department occurred Thursday or Friday. The building also houses the Konza Prairie Community Health Center and an office of a federal health program.

The Manhattan Mercury reports the offices were ransacked, apparently in a search for something to steal. Nothing was taken, but cabinets, windows and doors were damaged. The Community Health Center also reported $5,000 in damage to denture molds.
