FITCHBURG -- A thief broke into the city's police headquarters early Monday morning, stealing a "novelty item" and an overcoat, according to Sgt. Glenn Fossa.

Fossa refused to specify what the novelty item was because he said the investigation is still "very active."

The suspect gained entry to a hallway on the first floor by breaking the window of an exterior security door. The break-in occurred around 3:27 a.m. and was discovered at 3:34 a.m., said Fossa.

Detectives are reviewing video surveillance of the police grounds.

Police have increased security twice at the station in the past few years, adding security doors and locks when the new community room was announced, and following the arrest of a local woman found in the hallway of headquarters over a year ago.

"Right now there's nothing to suggest the police department is at further risk," said Police Chief Robert DeMoura in a statement.
