Halifax police probing another break-in at downtown business

Police in the Town of Halifax are investigating the report of another break-in they received Saturday.

According to Acting Halifax Police Chief David Irby, someone broke into the law office of Fred Black located on South Main Street by forcing open the front door of the office.   

Black reported he could find nothing missing.  

Damage to the door-frame is estimated at approximately $150, Irby said.    

This incident is believed to have occurred in the early morning hours of last Thursday when a number of other area businesses were broken into, Irby said.

Sometime early Thursday morning a thief or thieves also burglarized The Packhouse and the law offices of John Greenbacker, George Bagwell, W. Bryant Claiborne and David Guthrie.  

A break in at K&D Floor Covering was unsuccessful.

Entry was gained at most locations through either jimmying or kicking the rear door in, Irby said.

Anyone with information regarding the break-in at Black’s law office is asked to call the Town of Halifax Police Department at 476-2526 or the Halifax County Crime Line at 476-8445.   

A reward of up to $1,000 will be offered for information leading to the arrest and conviction of any person(s) involved.
