Man and Woman Wanted after Weekend Break-in at Hegeler-Carus Mansion

Posted by wlpo on August 22, 2016

A typically peaceful La Salle landmark turned into a crime scene over the weekend.

The Hegeler-Carus Foundation put out a statement Monday saying the mansion was broken into by two people on Sunday. According to the message, a man forced his way in via a ground floor window before attempting to let a woman in.

While inside, he set off an alarm that sent La Salle Police to the scene. The pair ran before police could catch them. If you know anything about the duo, the foundation is asking you to call the La Salle Police Department.

Despite the break-in, the mansion will resume its normal tour hours Wednesday.
