Police are trying to determine who stole chemicals from a laboratory at the Community College of Allegheny County on the North Side, officials said Wednesday.

Pittsburgh Public Safety spokeswoman Sonya Toler said an inventory revealed that chemicals were missing, however, she couldn't say what chemicals were taken.

“It has not been determined yet,” she said.

A CCAC spokeswoman reached Wednesday afternoon said she was looking into the matter.

A CCAC employee noticed that the door to a fifth floor lab in the K. Leroy Irvis Science Center was propped open Tuesday morning, Toler said. It appeared someone had improperly used chemicals in the lab. Investigators are working with the school to determine what chemicals were taken, Toler said.
