Surveillance Camera Captures Break-In at KSSK Radio

IWILEI (KHNL) -- They're known for giving prizes away. But no one at KSSK Radio intended to be this generous.

Two men break into the station's offices and help themselves to various personal items. Now, we have surveillance video of the crime.

A man goes from cubicle to cubicle, looking for things to steal. In a quick fashion, he and his partner score.

"They were in there for about four minutes," Sgt. Kim Buffett, Crimestoppers, said. "But they were able, with two of them, to go through all the cubicles and take miscellaneous items out of them."

The video shows one of the suspects grabbing a bag and walking away. The burglary happened June 5th, shortly after the office staff at KSSK and its sister stations went home for the day.

"I think they just did a random search and got lucky," Buffett said.

Workers discovered the break-in when they returned the next morning.

"One of the employees took the back stairway into the building and found scattered envelopes everywhere, a lot of office memos," Buffett said. "When they went in and they checked, they found that their offices had been ransacked."

A surveillance camera caught all the action. Police say they're still trying to tally up the loss.

"Digital cameras, wallets, regular video cameras, just miscellaneous items that people leave in their cubicles," Buffett said.

Station officials believe the burglars got in through a side door. They say they've since changed the locks at their offices.

"We're asking if anybody has any information or can identify these two males, please call," Buffett said.

If you can help with this case, call Crimestoppers at 955-8300. All calls are confidential.
