Break-in at HPD headquarters

Hattiesburg, (WDAM)- Federal and state law enforcement agents have been brought in to investigate a break in at the Hattiesburg police department.

Authorities say one or more suspects entered the building through an unoccupied portion of the facility. The department is housed in the old Methodist hospital building on Hall avenue...a building that was built in 1925. Police say the breach occurred in an area of the building that is not being used by the police department.  Authorities are not saying if the suspects actually made it into the department area itself but adds that an extensive inventory is being made of all items to determine if anything is missing. We are told the F.B.I., the Mississippi Bureau of Investigation, and the State Attorney General's office are investigating the break-in.
