Meat, TV sets stolen after Bingo Night event
The Crawford County Sheriff’s Department is investigating a burglary at the Knights of Columbus Hall in Cuba that resulted in the theft of three flat screen television sets the Knights had planned to raffle at their Super Bowl party to help support local food pantries, as well as other items from the hall.
The incident was first reported on Friday, January 4 by Knight Eugene Pfeiffer, who told a county deputy he discovered the building had been broken into that morning, while he was opening the hall. The previous night, the hall had been used to host Bingo Night.
Pfeiffer showed a deputy the metal entrance door on the east side of the hall and a wooden interior door, both of which had been pried open. A tire iron was also found in the back hallway, on top of a beer keg. It was thought to have been used to pry open the doors and gain entry into the hall after hours.
Other evidence collected at the scene included a flashlight and several bungee cords.
The Knights reported the theft of bingo supplies, including several boxes of bingo scorecards; three new 50-inch LCD television sets, still in their boxes, valued at $500; a 50-inch LCD TV valued at $600; a 32-inch LED screen TV valued at $400; approximately $50 in petty cash taken from the donation pot in the bar area; and prime rib and other meats from one of the hall’s freezers, which are used for Steak Night.
Authorities are still investigating the matter. No arrests have been made.
