ANDERSON, Ind. — Thousands of dollars in change — all collected for charities — was taken during a burglary from an Anderson business overnight Monday.

Between 7:30 p.m. Monday and 8:45 a.m. Tuesday New Horizons Vending — 3200 Raible Ave. — was burglarized, Anderson police spokesman Detective Mitch Carroll said. The back door to the building was pried open, and there were marks in the ground behind the business indicating that a cart had been used to haul several bags of change from the building to several hundred yards east of the building where the change was loaded into a vehicle.

This is the third time the vending company has been burglarized since 2009. In addition to the large amount of change, several hundred dollars in bills was also taken, Carroll said.

New Horizons staff told police that all of the money had been collected for charities and was awaiting distribution.

Anyone with information about the burglary or who sees someone with an unusually large amount of change is asked to call Anderson Crime Stoppers at 649-8310.
