MILLBROOK — Police arrested a local man Friday and charged him with breaking into the Millbrook library.
The building received “extensive” damage, said Police Chief P.K. Johnson. Officers responded to an alarm call and found Christopher D. Moody, 34. He was treated by Millbrook fire and rescue at the library for a laceration to one of his arms. He is charged with burglary and criminal mischief, the chief said.
“I’m extremely saddened to report this incident, as it’s just senseless,” Johnson said. “After taking the alleged offender into custody, our officers discovered that the building sustained extensive damage to both its outer and inside glass doors, exterior windows and electronics inside the building were damaged as well.
“Our library is used heavily by our citizens and the city personnel that work and volunteer there put a lot of time and effort into that place and they take pride in serving our community. I just hate they had to arrive this morning and see all that damage. It’s just so senseless and unnecessary.”
