Newspaper makes headlines after burglary
THE VILLAGE, Okla. — When thieves broke into the Friday Paper building, they probably didn’t realize the break-in would end up on the front page of the paper.
Editor Vicki Clark said a window was smashed in.
“And inside the glass was this brick that they threw through the window, the double panes of glass in the windows,” she said.
The Friday Paper covers many of the who’s who and what’s what in the Northwest Oklahoma City area.
Publishers find it ironic that they’re now they news.
Clark said luckily the thieves were only after cash, which allowed there to be a front page.
“If they’d vandalized or torn up the computers we would have had problems because that’s where the stories that had been written and the pictures that have been taken were stored for the sections that were going to press that night. That would have been real trouble,” she said.
According to Village Police Deputy Chief Steve Jagosh, The Friday Paper was one of a number of burglaries in the May and Hefner area burglarized sometime early Tuesday morning.
“On the same day we had three other businesses that have been burglarized. They match the same type of incidents as far as throwing some type of object through the window,” he said.
And all after cash; in this case they passed on a bottle of wine and some good seats for the OKC Thunder.
No suspects have been arrested.
Anyone with information is asked to call the Village Police.
