LACONIA – Police are investigating a burglary at the Society of St. Vincent de Paul that was reported to them at 10:03 a.m. on Saturday.
Police Capt. Matt Canfield said somebody or some people broke into the building through a window and were able to access the safe. He said a "significant amount of money" was stolen.
"This is pretty much a cheap shot against an agency that does so much to help the people of Laconia and the surrounding communities," Canfield said, noting that this time of the year is when many people depend on St. Vincent's and other charitable agencies to help during the holidays.
He said that anyone with any information is urged to call the Laconia Police at 524-5252 or the Laconia Crime Line, which is anonymous, at 524-1717.
The Christian organization works to provide assistance to those in need in the Lakes Region through its thrift store, food pantry, The Children's Foundation and other programs.
The Daily Sun was unable to reach anyone affiliated with St. Vincent de Paul yesterday.
