Unsolved Burglaries at the Louisville Coliseum

LOUISVILLE, Miss. (WCBI) - There have been a series of burglaries at the Louisville Coliseum which remain unsolved.

"Based upon the little bit of evidence we do have, we feel like it's going to be somebody that's local, that's close by that's doing this," said Louisville Police Lt. Gerald Hayes.

In the last six weeks, the Coliseum has been hit three times. Authorities say there was no forced entry on the outside but on the inside, several doors were kicked open. Investigators say the stolen items and damage total thousands of dollars.

A burglar kicked in the office door leaving multiple shoe prints behind. Investigators think the intruder wears a size 10 or 11. Crooks stole two checks from the office and cashed them in Louisville, and that's not all.

"Just strange break-ins to the offices, tools missing, refrigerators, snow cone machines, just kind of odd stuff that doesn't make a lot of sense....We've changed locks since then, to solve that and still they are getting in somehow, so were just baffled," said Coliseum manager Todd McCullough.

Burglars broke into four different concession stands, one inside the coliseum and three on the baseball field. They took assorted chips and candies.

"There were so many valuable things that they passed over to get small things, which leads us to believe who the suspect may or may not be, but until we do bring those people to justice we really don't know why they did what they did," added Hayes, noting he believes the thieves are taking the items for personal use.

If anyone has any information, contact the Louisville Police Department or Golden Triangle Crime Stoppers. You can be in line for a reward.
