Utah Pride Center burglarized
Published on Dec 8, 2010 03:02PM  0 Comments
Four computers that were donated to the Utah Pride Center for community use were stolen Tuesday evening or early Wednesday morning, the center reports.
A burglar or burglars appear to have entered through a window on the center’s first floor at 355 N. 300 West in Salt Lake City. The crime is being investigated by the Salt Lake City police.
The computers were part of a free cyber lab used by patrons of the center and Café Marmalade, a coffee shop housed inside it. There were five computers in the cyber center.
“Burglary is always alarming, but this is particularly disheartening,” Valerie Larabee, executive director of the Utah Pride Center, said in a statement. “Our cyber center is a vital resource this time of year as members of our community without computer access at home or work are hoping to connect with their friends and family.”
The pride center hopes to find funds to replace the computers as quickly as possible. The stolen computers were donated by the David Bohnett Foundation.
The center, which serves the lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender community, reported a break-in in 2009 and was the target of vandalism this fall when someone painted an anti-gay slur on an outdoor sign.
