Cash Missing From Medical Offices

Six offices in the Sacred Heart Doctors’ Building were burglarized last week, apparently by someone who had a key that was intended for emergency use in case of fire.

Police said they were called to the building at 105 W. Eighth about 8 a.m. on Aug. 20 and found drawers and cabinets forced open with a screwdriver.

There was no sign of forced entry into the offices, but a lockbox in one office appeared to have been pried open with the fire key.

Some cash and postage stamps were missing, but nothing else of value was reported taken, police said.

Restaurant workers threatened

Two young men were arrested last week after employees of a fast-food restaurant on West Third Avenue were reportedly threatened.

Jeffrey D. Funkhouser, 18, 14912 E. Longfellow, and Christopher M. Kennedy, 18, 2115 N. Houk, were booked into jail after midnight last Friday.

Funkhouser was booked on charges of harassment and issuing threats to kill the workers. Kennedy was booked on a charge of being a minor in possession of alcohol.

Employees at Jack in the Box, 505 W. Third, said two young men in a pickup came to the drive-up window about 11:30 p.m. last Thursday while acting in a profane and vulgar manner.

When they were told to stop, the driver pulled to the window, slammed the glass with a knife and threatened to kill the employees, police said.

A passenger got out and tried to enter a locked rear door but couldn’t get in. The two then drove off.

Police arrested the men after spotting a pickup at Second and Madison. Three half-cases of beer were taken from the pickup.
