A hot dog steamer, two coffee machines, an electric heater, a fan, a ceramic table, a small refrigerator and about $500 in food and beverages were all taken from the building.
Police said during the second incident a resident in the area noticed two younger males leaving the woods at about 3 p.m. on October 20 pulling a dolly with the refrigerator on it.
