Alaska State Troopers are looking for information about a pool hall break-in, in the coastal village of Scammon Bay.

Troopers say they received a call last Wednesday morning that someone broke into the building, and took over one thousand dollars in cash.
They say the building was slightly damaged as well.

The break-in likely happened sometime last Monday morning. Anyone with information is asked to call the troopers in Bethel at 1-800-478-9112.
