Thieves hit vets office twice in a week

PHOENIX - A Valley office that offers services to veterans has been broken into twice in four days.

Burglars broke into the Arizona Chapter of Allied Veterans of America, located in the 8100 block of N. 23rd Avenue for the second time on Tuesday.

Burglars first broke an office window and were able to take cash that was being collected for a raffle. The second robbery took place after the thieves gained access through a back wall.

The suspects allegedly stole computer programs, printers and computers used for magazine publishing and for their website. The technology stolen had devices such as special mousse and keyboards for disabled veterans.

The organization also collects wheelchairs and other materials for injured vets that were also stolen.
