SANDPOINT — While not high value, items representing pieces of the community's history have been taken from the Bonner County Historical Museum over the past few weeks.
Among the items taken are calendars from an old, now-gone Sandpoint laundromat featured in the Women of Bonner County exhibit, an old ad that had been encased in a plexiglass container, and a USB drive from a monitor displaying old historic photos.
A police report has been filed. If anyone has any information, they can contact the museum with no questions asked, board president Ruth Wimberly said.
