A burglary at the Greenville Boys and Girls Club late Thursday evening has left the center without four CPUs and several other items.

According to a Greenville Police Department report, the burglary took place late Thursday evening or early Friday morning. There was no sign of a forced entry into the building, which is located at 1018 East Commerce Street.

Lt. Anthony Bargainer, spokesman for the Greenville Police Department, said that workers at the Boys and Girls Club, along with its executive director, Cynthia Peagler, noticed the missing items Friday morning.

&#8220I looked over and discovered the CPUs missing,” Peagler said in a WSFA report. &#8220These are things we've had donated from civic groups and organizations. We need these things for the kids.”

Attempts by The Advocate to contact representatives with the Greenville Boys and Girls Club were unsuccessful on Tuesday.

Among the missing items are four Compaq computer CPUs, valued at $1,600, 11 pairs of boots, $80 in assorted art supplies, $150 in various concessions and snacks, and one CD player.

The missing items were taken from two different meeting rooms near the front door.
