Authorities say the crooks came in through the back door, then kicked in the door to the town office. Absconding with about $3,500 in cash, the suspects also took around ten thousand dollars worth of checks that were made out to the town.
The Milbridge police department is located in the same building. However, officials tell us the officers were out on calls when the thieves broke in.
The thieves also broke into the town library across the hall.
Area clerks are being asked to keep an eye open for checks made out to the town.
Anyone with information on the crime is asked to call the town office, at 546-2422.
