Thieves Hit Safe, Steal Thousands from Portland Wrecker Service
PORTLAND (Kiii News) -
Portland police are investigating a burglary at Portland Auto Repair & Wrecker Service, which happened in the overnight hours on Sept. 16-17.
"Saw that my office had been, not completely turned upside down, but it was messy," owner Francisco Lozano, Jr., said. "And I looked back behind my desk and saw that my seat wasn't where it was supposed to be, and then I saw my safe on the floor."
Police said it appeared that someone had jumped a fence, forced their way into the building and pried open the safe. The burglars took several thousand dollars and are now on the run.
