Police are looking for the thieves who burglarized and ransacked community activist’s Yvonne Pointer’s home Thursday

Pointer’s backdoor was kicked in and her home on E. 114th was ransacked by the thieves, leaving it a mess with drawers open and clothes and pictures of her family and daughter who was raped and murdered more than 30 years ago on the floor.  The thieves also hit Pointer’s sacred “Hope Haven” room, where she does her popular Facebook Live segments.

It’s unclear how much the thieves got away with, but the IPad she uses for her Hope Haven segments is gone.

“Whatever you get from doing something like this, you can probably get even more if you get a job,” she said. “Go to work.”

Police tracked the thieves footprints in the snow as they headed towards E.113th Street. The thieves got away.

Detectives tell WKYC they are actively investigating, working to find cameras in the neighborhood which could help identify who they are.

If you have any information, you are encouraged to contact police.
