Thieves broke into a Hanover office building overnight Wednesday and stole thousands of dollars worth of electronic and computer equipment, county police said.

The thieves entered the building in the 7200 block of Parkway Corporate Drive between 9 p.m. Tuesday and 7 a.m. Wednesday by prying open the back door of the ground-level Red Cross office, police said. They vandalized a conference room and took a $500 combination television-videocassette recorder from a supervisor's office, police said.

The thieves then entered the first-floor System I Technology office by prying open a side door and poured powdered creamer onto the floor and into computers, printers and copiers, police said. They also took two laptop computers, a mouse, and two adapters, police said.

Next, the thieves went to Fletcher Challenger Forest and took a $100 pager, then pried open the door of the third-floor office suite of General Electric, where they stole a television, VCR and two laptop computers, police said.
