Break-ins reported at two nonprofits

Two nonprofit agencies housed within a block of each other on South Jones Boulevard reported overnight break-ins Tuesday, Las Vegas Metro Police said.

The American Heart Association, 4445 S. Jones Boulevard, and Olive Crest, 4435 S. Jones Boulevard, each were broken into sometime late Tuesday or early Wednesday.

Jason Belland, executive director of the Las Vegas division of the American Heart and Stroke Association, said the culprit or culprits entered through a window and stole two laptops and a docking station for one of the computers. Down the street at Olive Crest, which provides services for foster children, the thief or thieves also entered through a window and made off with a single computer.

Belland said the heart association’s office alarm system was not activated, making the time of the crime a mystery.

“I think (there’s) just a sense of frustration because we are trying to make a difference in the community and help others,” he said.

Belland doesn’t expect the burglary to impact his organization’s ability to help the community, but he did say it would spend additional funds on security.
