The city of Adrian has found itself the victim of several break-ins resulting in one Adrian business closing its doors.

On the night of September 2nd, the Adrian Country Club clubhouse was broken into. “It appeared that the person(s) gained entry into the clubhouse through a window,” said Police Chief Shawn Langseth. “As this is an on-going investigation, I am limited to what I can say.  The items taken were a laptop computer and alcohol.”

In the early morning of October 29th, the car wash owned by Carl’s Farm Store was broken into and vandalized.  Approximately $7500 in damage was done to the building and to the mechanisms inside.   According to Tim Voss, the person responsible used a fire extinguisher to break a hole into the control room, destroyed the wiring and the machinery inside, and to get into the bill changer.  The damage was so extensive, that Carl’s decided not to make the repairs, but to close the car wash.

In the same early morning hours, according to Chief Langseth, a theft of a vehicle was reported within the city limits.  The vehicle was taken for a joyride, but was recovered shortly after. Langseth reported that the two incidences were related.
