Wapakoneta police Chief Russel Hunlock told the Wapakoneta Daily News in an interview Wednesday morning that they are following up some leads in the investigation of Friday night’s break-in at the Armstrong Air & Space Museum.
"Whoever did this is very good at what they do,” Hunlock said. "We can rule out that some local people who are addicted to drugs and looking for a quick score. These people knew what they were doing and knew exactly what they wanted.”
According to Hunlock the police department responded to the museum within a couple of minutes after getting the call just before midnight. He also said that there was a significant delay between the time the alarm was sounded and the police received the call from the alarm company.
Hunlock said the police feel the thief left the museum from a different exit than what they used to enter the building.
