True Value has $2539 loss
After a recent report of theft at a local hardware store, the identity of the suspect has led police to reclassify the charges.
Police arrested James Vincent Bruna, 21, of the 2400 block of Greenbriar Drive, on Tuesday and booked him on charges of burglary and criminal damage to property, according to a report from the Riley County Police Department.
Because there was no forced entrance, police originally filed the incident as a theft, said Capt. Kurt Moldrup of the RCPD. Moldrup said the case is now a burglary because Bruna, the suspect, was an employee. He did not have permission to be in the building at the time of the incident in question.
Bruna is suspected of damaging the interior door window to a secure office area, attempting to open a safe with a blow torch and taking money from inside an office, according to the report.
The damage to the window is estimated at $150. The damage to the safe is estimated at $500. The amount of cash taken from inside the office was $1,889, according to the report.
Police reported that the original incident happened sometime between the night of Nov. 30 and the morning of Dec. 1.
Bruna’s bond was set at $3,000.
