Probe into theft of safe continues

The March theft of a safe from the Del Norte Solid Waste Management Authority’s office remains under investigation.

The safe contained an unspecified amount of cash up to $5,000, said sheriff’s Commander Bill Steven.

The suspect cut through a wall of the prefabricated building where the safe was located, Steven said.

Video surveillance showed a dark figure that was unidentifiable, Steven said.

“They used a hand cart to carry the safe away down a trail (near State and Benson streets),” said Steven.

The theft is not suspected to be an inside job since there was a report of a break-in at the office in February when the burglar was unsuccessful in taking the safe, Steven said.
