Eagles Lodge break-in reported


The Eagles Club was broken into sometime early Sunday morning.

A burglar entered by breaking through the back door. Security cameras showed that a male intruder ransacked the place and stayed inside the lodge for about half an hour.

Dispatch notified police that the Eagles’ security alarm was going off, and officers Adam Florenzen and Sgt. Gary Moore both responded.

The officers searched the building and photographed potential evidence, which was then turned over to the Washington State Crime Lab.

Several interior doors had been forced open, and cash registers were opened. Parts of a large safe were peeled off but the intruder didn’t get inside.

Eagles Manager Iva Graves was called to the site and provided police with security recordings. They showed a male wearing a heavy, dark, hooded coat and jeans, white shoes and glasses.

The suspect entered the building about 6:30 a.m. and left about 7 a.m.

Extensive damage was done to the building, safe and other items.

Police stated that nothing was taken, since cash is no longer kept in the registers. The door to the room where liquor is stored was forced open, but none was taken.

While extensive damage was done, no estimates were available.
