A suspect’s believed to have entered a Springfield business after hours by descending from its ceiling.
Springfield police responded to a report of a burglary at Custom Staffing, 1345 W. First St. on Monday at around 8:30 a.m., according to a police report. There, they found evidence that someone had gained entry by the ceiling and stole from the business.
“I did observe a ceiling tile out of place and insulation on the floor beneath the tile,” the report says.
A laptop valued at $400 and petty cash was taken from the business, the report says.
“(The reporting person) stated all of the doors and windows were locked and secure when she arrived at the office,” the report says. “She believes the suspect exited the business through the ceiling as well.”
The case is still under investigation, according to the report.
