The theft happened on Monday the Three Kings Day holiday when the government office was closed.

Was there a guard posted? If there was a guard, what was he doing? Does the thief have any type of connection to the facility? The media should be asking these questions.

The other objects stolen was copper piping as reported in the Diario Libre.
