BROKEN ARROW, Okla. - The staff at the Broken Arrow Neighbors, 322 W Broadway Ave., is picking up the pieces left from a weekend burglary. Sunday night, March 17, the agency's outside storage building was broken into.
Kim Goddard, executive director for Broken Arrow Neighbors, said there was an attempt to break into the building Saturday night, and Sunday evening, someone took a pick ax and broke through the look and door frame.
The thief was able to take several miscellaneous food items and frozen meat from the freezer, Goddard said.
“Not that this will put a huge deficit in our supply, but this is very disheartening, because we try to be the type of agency that is available to anyone in need,” she said. “We are just fortunate that it was not our main building.”
Broken Arrow Neighbors serves about 10,000 individuals each year, and daily their numbers range from 15-30 families fed Monday through Thursday.
“This is the second time in the last few months that food items have been stolen,” Goddard said. “We are working to eliminate this from happening again.”
Goddard said a police report has been filed on the incident.
