On Sunday evening, September 13, into Monday morning, two males entered the Christian Healthcare Ministries building (former Portage School) located at 800 Wooster Road North.
Once inside, they discharged a fire extinguisher causing significant damage to electronic equipment.
The suspects then stole a computer and fled the scene. Along with the breaking and entering, damaging and theft, the intrusion triggered a commercial fire alarm. This false alarm set forth a multi vehicle/personnel response from the Barberton Fire Department. The aftermath left damages that C.H.M. had to hire a service company to clean the affected areas.
If you have information regarding this break in, please contact Det. Tony Memmer at 330-861-7255.
