On Wednesday, the thieves broke into a shed at the nonprofit Paso Cares’ feeding site at 24th Street and Riverside Drive in Paso Robles and snatched lanterns, bags of socks, toiletries, food, a backpack and a computer.

Officials have yet to determine a dollar value for the items stolen.

Paso Cares President Ed Gallagher said the nonprofit is working to replace the shed with a container that would be much more difficult to break into. Workers aim to finish the job by the end of the week.

It is unclear when the warming centers will reopen.

    I don’t get it! Why would the warming centers be closed due to a break-in of a shed? None of the items taken seem to be connected with the operation of a warming center. Something isn’t being said here…
