Someone broke into the SOWEGA Council on Aging center on Pine Avenue early Monday morning and stole food.

The thief kicked in the same window in front of the senior center that was smashed in a February break in. Employees discovered the break in

about 5 Monday morning. The crook smashed several interior doors, but stole only pennies from a collection jar and two cases of ribs.

Site One Director Angela Smith said  "This is lunch for our seniors. And it's just unbelievable that somebody would take senior's food out of their mouths. Really. Virtually."

None of the Senior's programs were affected by the break-in, but directors say the senior's were upset because they consider this center their safe haven. SOWEGA Council directors say no money is kept in their centers.
