Lincoln Home reviews security after break-in

SPRINGFIELD – Workers at the Lincoln Home National Historic Site in Springfield are reviewing security procedures after a man broke in to the basement.

The State Journal-Register in Springfield reported a man from Marshall in southeastern Illinois pleaded guilty to trespassing and criminal property damage after being found in the basement earlier this month.

Jordan Clark was sentenced to time served and ordered to pay $3,000 in restitution.

Authorities said he may have been trying to steal copper wire from the property.

Dale Phillips is superintendent of the site. He said the break-in was the first workers at the property can remember.

Phillips said employees will go over security procedures, but said police and park rangers were alerted by a security alarm and arrived within minutes of the break-in.
