Belfast police are looking for the three crooks who broke into a local jewelry store. It happened just after midnight Thursday morning at Belast Jewelry in the Reny's shopping plaza. Surveilance video shows the crooks shooting at the front door and then using a hammer to break the glass to get inside. The crooks then smashed display cases and grabbed assorted jewelry before making their getaway. Belfast police are now following up leads and using dna evidence with hopes of catching the masked burglars.
State lawmakers want more information before they tackle repairs on the state house dome. They were asked this week to spend $1.2 million dollars to replace the copper sheathing which is showing signs of age. The century old cover has outlived its 75 year lifespan and has holes and other marks left by years of hail and storms. Lawmakers put off a decision on whether to spend the money. They want more information on the domes condition before moving ahead.
