VEVAY TOWNSHIP, Mich. (AP) - Authorities say roughly $1,000 was stolen from a Lansing-area Veterans of Foreign Wars post following a Veterans Day open house.

Mason VFW Post 7309 Commander Larry Heuer tells the Lansing State Journal (http://on.lsj.com/1QmdxO3 ) that a front window was smashed to gain entry into the group’s hall in Ingham County’s Vevay Township about 4:15 a.m. Thursday. He says the hall “is supposed to be our safe house.”

The theft was recorded on surveillance video, but the sheriff’s department says the recording doesn’t show the suspect clearly.

Heuer says the money was from public donations and usually is used to help local veterans, including those who need help with medical bills while awaiting Veterans Affairs benefits. He says the break-in was the third to take place at the hall since 2010.
