WILMINGTON, NEW HANOVER COUNTY - The Cape Fear Museum is increasing security after the recent theft of some Civil War artifacts.
The StarNews of Wilmington reports an oval brass belt buckle and four buttons from Civil War uniforms were taken from the museum last month. The objects were taken from a display cabinet with a broken lock.
Museum spokeswoman Amy Kilgore Mangus says since the theft, the museum is installing new locks on display cases and is getting estimates on more security cameras.
Mangus says the items were apparently taken when the museum was open so no motion-activated alarms were tripped.
