Meals on Wheels break-in, twice in two weeks

By Michael Slother

LUBBOCK, TX (KCBD) - Lubbock Police are investigating a break-in at Meals on Wheels. They say intruders cut locks Thursday morning, and entered through a rear dock.

Meals on Wheel Director Lorrie Bellair says the burglars took off with a variety of items, including dog food and chairs. However, a wagon load of items belonging to Meals on Wheels was recovered nearby. "This stuff is used to do good in the community, and that greenhouse being vandalized, it's not needed," Bellair continued. "It's not necessary."

Bellair also says in an attempt to siphon gasoline, the suspects punctured the van's fuel tank. She says this follows another case of vandalism just last week, when four hubcaps were stolen off a newer van. That theft cost the non-profit organization nearly $500.

After two incidents, Bellair is looking into ways she can protect the organization and its property. "Video cameras at least help so you can get pictures and see when things are happening in action. I guess that will be our next thing, to look at putting video cameras up," Bellair said.

If you have any information in this case, you may be eligible for a cash reward. So call Crime Line at (806) 741-1000.
