HEIDELBERG, Germany — The Campbell Barracks food court and shoppette were burglarized sometime Monday night. Authorities did not say how much, if any, money was stolen or whether there were suspects.

But it was clear Tuesday how the burglary had been accomplished: Main wooden doors into the food court were smashed at the lock. Wood chips were scattered on the floor.

Both buildings were closed on Tuesday, with signs at the food court entrance instructing, “Do not touch doors.”

“We did have an incident last night. It was a very big incident,” said Lt. Col. David Konop, a spokesman for the Army and Air Force Exchange Service. “We have handed it over to CID (Criminal Investigation Command).”

The food court consists of a Burger King, Seattle’s Best Coffee and counters to buy pizza and Asian food. The shoppette has a variety of items. But there also was probably cash on hand.

“I’m pretty confident most of our food courts have safes,” Konop said.

Konop said he expected the facilities to reopen Wednesday.
