Westminster Motors is offering reward

January 19, 1994|By Bill Talbott | Bill Talbott,Staff Writer

The owner of Westminster Motors on Route 140 said his company is offering "a large reward" for the arrest and conviction of the people responsible for breaking in and stealing temporary paper license tags from the dealership's office Jan. 10.

Jeff Legum said intruders broke into the building, forced open an office safe and jimmied open doors to additional rooms. He estimated the damage and loss at more than $6,150.

The dealership owner said the burglars did considerable damage to his office door by forcing it open.

Westminster police said they were told a customer left a purse in her vehicle, which she left at the facility for repairs, and called the dealership to ask an employee to put the purse in the office for safekeeping.

The purse was placed in the safe the night of the burglary. The intruders took $70 from the purse, but left the purse and credit cards behind, police said.

Mr. Legum declined to specify the amount of the reward.
