Danville offers reward for info on Veterans Building site theft


Following the recent break-in at the Veterans Memorial Building site, the Town of Danville is offering a $5,000 reward for tips leading to an arrest in the case.

Under a resolution passed by the Town Council May 17, 2005, the Town may offer the reward. Information given to the police department must lead to an arrest and conviction in order for the reward to be paid. Police are continuing to investigate the case, in which persons unknown entered the site and took building materials and tools.

"We are hopeful that the reward will lead us to a break in this case," said Town Manager Joe Calabrigo. "Given the use of this building, and the expectations of our community of veterans, they deserve to be caught."

Any person with information regarding the theft at the Veterans Memorial Building is urged to contact Det. Sgt. Allan Shields at 314-3703 or

One would think the insurers of these projects would mandate the erection of video monitors to be able to watch over these sites. The knowledge that your on candid camera has caught many a thief and prevented untold thousands by those who are deterred by signs that say something like "smile your under surveillance. The signs must of course be in English and Spanish.

I agree that the insurers should have had video cameras installed, but the Danville Police are down the street. Were these guys asleep or what??
