Recreation department burglaries investigated

The office at the Lamar County recreation department office was burglarized overnight Aug. 19 and the concession stand and scoring tower were broken into over the Aug. 22 weekend. Soccer coordinator Tiffany Lowe said the door to athletic director Buddy Lanier’s office was kicked open and a drawer was broken on one of the desks during the first break-in. The thief or thieves removed an unused window air conditioner to take a safe which holds the department’s cash. Lowe said the safe contained “checks from an old account, credit cards and other than that, nothing really.” She said there was little in the safe of value. ”Luckily they had just deposited earlier this week,” said Lowe. “So whatever they took shouldn’t have been a whole lot.” Investigator Dickie Carreker of the Barnesville police said the credit cards in the safe were cancelled as soon as they saw the safe was taken and the safe did not hold much more to track the thief or thieves.
