Capitol Hill’s Gay City Health is looking for assistance from the public following a burglary at their E Pike headquarters early Friday morning.
Overnight between 1 and 4:30a, a thief proceeded to use a stolen security fob to enter the premises three times and remove what seems to be a targeted list of electronics and equipment, Gay City’s Robert Roth said.
Included in the haul were two computers used for media and graphics work, cameras, a high-end video camera and an external hard drive with years of work from Gay City documentaries.
“Insurance will replace [the equipment], but the footage is irreplaceable,” Roth said.
The fob was apparently stolen from Gay City earlier in the week.
Gay City provides education and health services to residents in King County. It is a CHS advertiser.
Anybody with information about the theft or who may have seen something around the 500 block of E Pike early this morning is encouraged to call East Precinct burglary detectives at (206) 684-5733. You can also let Gay City know at (206) 860-6969.
