Flint burglary where water files stored 'an inside job,' police chief says

FLINT, MI -- Mystery still surrounds an unsolved December break-in at an executive office inside City Hall where Flint water files were kept.

As of Friday, March 18, there were still no suspects in the case, and officials say it may never be known what -- other than a TV -- was taken.

But the city's new police chief Tim Johnson says it's too suspicious that there was a break-in where important documents were kept, just as investigations began heating up and decision makers were beginning to be held accountable.

"It was definitely an inside job. The power cord (to the TV) wasn't even taken. The average drug user knows that you'd need the power cord to be able to pawn it," Johnson said.

i think the fact that the power cord was still there does not constitute strong evidence of theft: http://www.monoprice.com/Product?p_id=5278&gclid=CjwKEAjw8bO3BRDp0bP_vL-7_lASJACL_d6wIk3E1ojzJ_VDS00NwEr6LTRFw5ddjFHFwWmtESlSRxoCAjHw_wcB , let alone their ubiquitous nature.
