PEORIA - The Peoria Zoo is beefing up its security system after recent break-ins.

The Park District Chief of Police says the zoo was broken into twice in the last week.

The burglars are believed to have hopped the fence then ransacked the candy machine.

No harm was done to the animals.

Security measures have been taken to catch the suspects if they try to rob the zoo for a third time.
