Panama City Beach police are investigating a break-in. The ironic thing about the crime is in happened on police department property.
Investigators are searching for the person who had the nerve to break into a storage building. Not that it takes a lot of guts to commit a burglary, but it does when the break-in took place at the Police department’s training facility.
The break-in happened sometime this past weekend. The burglars got inside of the fenced compound and cut the padlock off, the pried-open the door of the storage building.
Once inside they stole 2-cases of shotgun shells and some training aids. Deputy Police Chief David Humphreys say the items were not that valuable, but it could have been worse.
"it was something that was kind of unexpected. There was a large amount of regular ammunition in there that was not taken. We have since relocated that and it is in a safer place. We have obtained some video...evidence of a vehicle that was in the area...and the individual was apparently seen down the area by a city worker and run off. So we have that lead and we re following up on that and hope to be able to bring it to a resolution based on that start.”
