Salt Lake County sheriff's detectives are investigating a burglary at an attorney's office in which thieves stole everything and then left a dead skunk on a heating vent.
An attorney's office in the 3100 West block of 47th South was burglarized sometime Saturday night or Sunday, according to a sheriff's office report.
The attorney told deputies the thieves, who entered by breaking a window, stole everything down to the last lightbulb. Items listed stolen include a photocopy machine, a computer, a microwave, a refrigerator, about 500 law books, diplomas and pictures and cleaning supplies.
The stolen property totaled about $17,000.
A dead skunk was found on a heating vent, and the thermostat had been turned up all the way, the report stated.
