Lacey police say a burglary of a Lanoka Harbor home damaged by Superstorm Sandy resulted in $70,000 worth of items being stolen.
The owner of a residence on the 800 block of Oxgoose Drive reported to police that the residence has been empty since June, as it was undergoing renovations due to Sandy and was empty with no sheetrock on the walls.
According to a statement from township police, the owner checked on the residence and discovered the rear entry door had been pried open and someone removed all of the newly installed wiring, copper plumbing, and fixtures from inside.
The resident reported the damage at an estimated $70,000, the statement said.
