GENOA – Police are seeking information about a burglary about two weeks ago at the DeKalb County Animal Shelter.

On Oct. 21, someone entered the shelter at 16173 Base Line Road in Genoa and stole a laptop and desktop computer and some cash, according to a news release from the DeKalb County Sheriff’s Office.

Sheriff Roger Scott said the burglar appeared to have entered by prying open an unsecured window. 

Nothing was broken to gain entry, he said.

The computers contained nearly all of the shelter’s records for the last several months, director Roberta Shoaf said. They were the only computers the shelter had.

“Our animal records were on there, everything,” she said. “We now have to go through record by record and recreate several months.”

The shelter does backup its computer files on a mirror hard drive, Shoaf said, but that was taken with the computers.

The intruder only made off with about $30 in cash, she said.

“We just don’t keep cash here,” she said. “But that was all of our computers.”

Anyone with information about the burglary, items taken or people involved is asked to call Crime Stoppers at 815-895-3272 or e-mail Callers can remain anonymous.
