Memphis Police Investigating Break-In At Swimming Pool

The Memphis Police Department is investigating a break-in at the municipal pool that occurred overnight Friday, July 21st.

An employee at the Memphis Swimming Pool reported the incident early Saturday morning after finding the door to the pool’s pump room ajar.

Water Department Superintendent Dennis Howard inspected the pool equipment and found no damage to the invaluable pool pumps or chemical equipment.

The suspect(s) gained entry to the locked room by using some form of tool to destroy the door casing and free the deadbolt and door locks.

Investigators were able to recover evidence at the scene of the crime and the city is considering the possibility of offering a reward for information in the case.

In just its second season, the new swimming pool, represents a significant investment by the community, with more than $350,000 in funding used to construct the aquatic center that averaged more than 100 customers a day last season.
