The main UPS facility in Duluth was "ransacked" during a break-in Sunday afternoon, police said.

Officers were called to the warehouse and customer service center at 111 Port Terminal Drive on the report of a burglary at approximately 5:40 p.m., according to a statement from the Duluth Police Department.

The officers "located multiple items that were ransacked through" and the department's crime scene investigations team was called in to provide assistance.

"The investigation is in its preliminary stages," the statement said. "No arrests have been made at this time."

Police declined to provide specifics on the nature or volume of any items taken or damaged at the facility, but a company representative indicated nothing was stolen.


“On Sunday, our facility on (Port) Terminal Road was broken into and we are working with local authorities," spokeswoman Karen A. Tomaszewski Hill wrote in an email to the News Tribune. "The incident did not involve any theft and has not affected our service.”
