closed amount of money was taken from the Sturbridge temporary Town Hall complex during a burglary that took place late Sunday night or early Monday morning.

"There were some items taken," Sturbridge Detective Mark Saloio said Monday. "We're currently investigating it right now."

Interim Town Administrator Michael Racicot, who often spends overnights on the property the town is leasing from Old Sturbridge Village while the actual Town Hall is undergoing renovations, was the first person to notice the break-in at approximately 7 a.m. Monday, when he saw the door to one of the departments ajar as he walked from his suite at the rear of the building to his office at the front.

According to Racicot, "some petty cash," turned up missing following the investigation into the break-in that affected several municipal departments in the complex.
