ST. LOUIS (KMOV) – Police are investigating after someone stole from a downtown St. Louis museum for the second time in 10 days.

It happened at the Campbell House Museum in the 1500 block of Locust around 10 p.m.

Authorities said an employee arrived to the museum to find the front door of the business had been opened. She went inside and discovered $98 had been stolen from a cash box on the floor.

A large, 160-year-old etched glass window was broken during the robbery. Officials said no other merchandise or relics from the historic home were taken.

The cash box was in the same place it was on July 28, when someone stole $90 from it during a regular work day.

Police said they did not yet have any suspects, but believe both cases are connected.

The museum, located near the Soldier’s Memorial, stands as one of the most accurately restored 19th century building in the country after undergoing a $3 million restoration in 2005.
