By Freedom Newspapers

New Mexico State Police officials will not release details about their continuing investigation of the break-in Thursday night of the Fort Sumner Police Department’s evidence room except to say no cases would be compromised.

“No cases will be jeopardized based on what was taken,” said state police spokesman Lt. Rick Anglada.

Anglada said investigators are questioning “everyone who had a key or who had access” to the evidence room.

“We were called in (Thursday) by the (Fort Sumner police) chief to investigate the break-in,” he said.

Anglada said state police expect to release information by early next week.

“(Investigators) are being tight-lipped,” he said.
