Valley Springs — Calaveras County sheriffs officials were investigating a break-in late Wednesday at a Valley Springs bank.
Shortly before 10:30 p.m., deputies responded to an activated burglar alarm at Umpqua Bank on Highway 26. They arrived at the bank within minutes of the alert.
The deputies found ceiling tiles that had fallen to the floor inside the bank. Sheriffs officials said it appeared that the burglar climbed onto the roof and entered the bank through a vent.
Once inside the bank, the burglar set-off the alarm. The deputies found several drawers ransacked, but nothing appeared to have been stolen.
The burglar got away shortly before deputies arrived. Sheriffs officials said investigators collected a significant amount of evidence, including traces of DNA, fingerprints and shoeprints and security camera footage.
