MONROEVILLE, Pa. (AP) - A state lawmaker’s office in the Pittsburgh suburbs was burglarized, but it wasn’t immediately clear if anything was taken.

Democratic state Rep. Joseph Markosek tells the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette (https://bit.ly/1PiQAM7 ) that a staffer discovered the break-in about 7:30 a.m. Wednesday. Three desktop computers were disconnected and moved, but apparently the burglar or burglars couldn’t get them out of the office.

Police in Monroeville, about 15 miles east of Pittsburgh, were investigating.

Markosek says it a appears someone pushed a picnic table beneath a rear office window to gain entrance.

Markosek says a couple of locked drawers were broken into, but he says they contain mostly photos and items of sentimental value.

He has no idea why the office was targeted saying, “The stuff in my drawers and my computer would be pretty boring.”
