Thieves entered the Hood River Chamber of Commerce offices sometime on the night of Oct. 30 and walked away with two laptops, a desktop and about $50 in petty cash, said Hood River Police Chief Neal Holste.
“There was entry through the north side door,” said Holste, who noted that although the door had been locked, the door lock-pins may not have been fully secured in the door frame prior to the break-in. There was no glass broken or sign of force at the site. “It was very clean — nothing broken,” Holste said.
Detective Don Cheli did find fingerprints at the scene and according to Holste is sending them in for analysis.
“This is the first business break-in we’ve had in a long-time,” he added.
None of the chamber’s expensive display photos or wall art was touched and Holste noted that unlike many break-ins, there had been no ransacking, with the office leaving the office virtually untouched outside of the computer thefts.
“We have the serial numbers of the laptops, and will keep those on file if they turn up later,” said Holste.
