Possible break-in at The Community House

An employee reported a possible break-n at The Community House on Sunday, April 24, after seeing broken glass at an entry door.


Birmingham police were dispatched to The Community House, 400 S. Bates Street, at approximately 8:15 a.m., for a possible breaking and entering. An employee reported that upon arrival, there was broken glass above the entry door handle.


Officers observed the glass pushed inward, marks on the wood door frame and a pole nearby with glass around it. The door remained locked.
