Shakopee Police offer reward for break-in information 06 Jun 12

Shakopee Police are looking for almost two dozen people who they say broke into a county-owned building and threw a party following the Soundset concert at Canterbury Park on May 27.

Surveillance video shows several teens and young adults using a parking sign to break a door at the office complex on Canterbury Road. The large garage building is owned by the Community Action Partnership of Scott, Carver and Dakota Counties.

Shakopee Police Capt. Craig Robson told the Shakopee Valley News the break-in happened around the same time officers were evacuating 19,000 people from the concert grounds due to severe storms. Robson said the concert-goers broke into the building and then propped a door open so friends could come and go.

Police are still investigating whether anything was taken or damaged, and authorities are offering up to $500 in reward money for any information that leads to the arrest and conviction of those responsible.

Anyone with information about the crime is asked to call the Shakopee Police Tip Line at (952) 233-9499.
