The God's Pantry food bank on Traveller Road has reopened after being shut down for two weeks. Three break-ins in a seven day period earlier this month forced the food bank to close its doors.
The thieves took off with frozen and canned food, along with an air conditioner.
Managers spent the time stepping up security measures in hopes of stopping future break-ins.
God's Pantry CEO Marian Guinn says she's disappointed that so much money had to be spent on security measures when it's so desperately needed for other food pantry programs. Guinn did not elaborate on all the new security features but she did say that lighting around the facility has improved and a heavy duty door has been installed.
So far, no arrests have been made for the break-ins.
