About $11,000 worth of electronics were stolen from the Alzheimer's Association headquarters in Watertown last month after thieves broke into the nonprofit's offices, according to Watertown police.

The perpetrators broke into the group's space at 480 Pleasant St. over the weekend before Aug. 19, which is when employees came into work and found the fire exit door's window smashed and the office missing key electronics, said Watertown Police Lt. Michael Lawn.

The thieves managed to break into four locked cabinets in conference rooms, taking four computers and four projectors. They also lifted a 32-inch Panasonic flatscreen TV, Lawn said.

Everything combined is worth nearly $11,000, he said.

Anyone with information can call the Watertown Police Department at 617-972-6500. For more information on the Alzheimer's Association, visit the organization's website.
