Horry County nonprofit office broken into, books stolen, report says

HORRY COUNTY, SC (WMBF) – Myrtle Beach police are investigating after it was reported that a nonprofit’s office had been broken into.

An employee with the Horry County Literacy Council alerted police to the crime on Thursday when she went into the office on North Kings Highway and noticed the door’s deadbolt was unlocked and the lights had been left on inside.

She told officers that file cabinets had been opened, about 50 books were missing from the shelf and a container was missing as well. She also said that other areas of the office had been rearranged but nothing else appeared missing, according to the police report.

The police report stated that the worker believed she knew who was responsible due to recent events. The woman told officers that three board members were forced to resign after funds and documents were discovered missing.

The worker told police that two of the members had returned their keys, but one former board member had not returned their key even though the agency had asked several times.

Police told the employee was told to change the locks to the location.

No one has been arrested or charged in the case.
