Marijuana, pants left at Red Cross after Monday night burglary


Police are investigating a burglary at Red Cross after someone entered the offices Monday night, ate multiple bags of snacks and took $10 in donated change.

An officer responded to a 8:10 a.m. call from an employee of the Red Cross located at 1600 W 3rd St, Bloomington Police Department Capt. Ryan Pedigo said. The employee told police someone had entered the building, and the door might have been left unlocked the night before. Officers found no signs of forced entry.

Police are unsure if one or multiple people entered the Red Cross after hours.

Unused needles and empty bags of snacks were on the floor inside the building. The needles were contained to one area while the empty snack bags were spread throughout. The employee valued the snacks at $20.

Donated loose change valued at $10 was also stolen from the office.

A bag of marijuana was left behind on an office shelf, and a pair of wet black shoes as well as a pair of jeans with a brown belt were left in another office. The shoes and pants were found next to two empty snack bags.

An Indiana ID card belonging to a 61-year-old transient woman was found in a pocket of the pants. Police are trying to contact the woman for more information.
