FRANKLIN COUNTY, Ky. (LEX 18) — A reward is being offered after a burglary in Franklin County.
Police say that someone broke into the local humane society for the second time this month. The Franklin County Humane Society has been targeted not once, but twice this month.
Frankfort police say that the thief or thieves broke in through a window, pried open a safe and took an unknown amount of cash.
"It really hurts their budget, even if it's a small amount of money, because that money is used for their day-to-day operations," said Chris Quire with the Frankfort Police Department.
Police are offering a $1,000 reward for any information leading to an arrest.
The shelter, which cares for more than 1,800 animals a year, will continue to do their best.
"We're just trying to recover and do our work," said Kerry Lowary, the manager at the Franklin County Humane Society.
