Intruders may have been looking for Halloween outfits

LOGANSPORT , Ind. —A break-in at a local museum took place because the intruders may have been looking for Halloween costumes, the owners believe.

Jean Cole, owner of the Cole Clothing Museum, said a wedding dress, a Victorian top and a dress from the 1960s, as well as other items were reported stolen.

She said when she went to work late last week both doors, including one made from stained glass, were wide open.

Some items in the museum had been stained with blood.

“I think they were hunting for Halloween costumes,” Cole said .

“Those two dresses were pretty valuable, but there were other valuable things they could have taken,” she added.

Cole said the museum has never experienced a break-in the 13 years the museum has been open.

“It just really upsets me . . . ,” Cole said.
