Thieves target Anne Arundel food bank
Thieves broke into the Anne Arundel County Food and Resource Bank Thursday night or early Friday, smashing windows and stealing computers and printers, workers said.
Executive Director Bruce Michalec said he arrived at the bank, on Generals Highway in Crownsville, on Friday morning to find police cars outside. Seven computers, four printers, a fax machine and television had been taken, employees said. They said the thieves appeared to have targeted a snowblower, which had been moved, but apparently gave up.
"It breaks my heart," Michalec said. "I figured people aren't going to hit someone like us, it's like hitting a church."
The bank distributes food and donated appliances, furniture and other items. It delivers food to 66 food pantries that handed out 47,000 bags of food in fiscal year 2010 and to soup kitchens that served more than 491,000 meals in 2009, according to the organization website.
