Burglar's damage at lounge nearly 10 times higher than theft
DOYLINE, La. (AP) - Louisiana authorities say damage done by a burglar was nearly 10 times higher than the amount stolen from a lounge.
The Bossier Parish Sheriff's Office said in a news release Monday that surveillance photos taken just before 2 a.m. Thursday show the man walking straight to the spot where the business keeps money overnight, and using bolt cutters to remove a lock.
Deputy Rod White says the man took a bank bag holding $100, and did $980 in damage at the Green Park Lounge in Doyline. He released two photos and asked anyone who recognized the man to call the sheriff's office.
