May 16, 2017 – West Bend, WI – Somebody broke into the downtown West Bend Theatre, 125 S. Main Street.
West Bend Police confirm they were at the theatre today following up on a complaint.
The theatre is currently vacant. A neighbor said it appeared toilet paper and some tickets were strewn about.
Police said it appeared someone entered through the back. There is a stairwell that went up to the pedestrian bridge, although that bridge was removed last week. The entryway remains but it was reportedly locked.

There’s also been some vandalism to the floor and decorative walls on the lower level.
Police are working on releasing more information.
