BOSTON (WHDH) -- The Massachusetts’ chapter of the National Alzheimer’s Association was robbed over the weekend, officials said.

Employees came in Monday to find cabinets unlocked and computers missing. The CEO of the state chapter does not know what to make of this troubling crime.

“It’s discouraging that anyone would, you know, feel they had to break into a non-profit organization. You know, we’ve very dedicated to our work to support families living with Alzheimer’s disease and also on the research front ultimately find a cure for this disease,” said CEO of the Massachusetts and New Hampshire chapter, James Wessler.

He also said the stolen equipment was worth $10,000. But the group’s insurance policy covers stolen property.
