Police confirm burglary investigation underway after $30K in damage done at Geneva daycare
– Original Report: Thursday
Upwards of $30,000 of damage has been reported by the Geneva Lakefront Childcare Center, after vandals broke into the property during the overnight, or early-morning hours.
Kelly Mahoney, president of the center’s board of directors, told the Finger Lakes Times an employee who got to the center off Elizabeth Blackwell Drive about 5:30 a.m. saw the damage and immediately called police. Mahoney said in talking with police, it may be one of several acts of vandalism in the area.
Police remained on-scene throughout the morning, but no official statements have been released at this time by law enforcement.
The center was closed Thursday. Mahoney said she would be meeting with employees and board members in an effort to get a commercial cleaner to come in, and find someone to fix a severed gas line, according to the Times reporting.
It’s unclear at this time when the center would re-open.
