Police are searching for three juveniles suspected of breaking into Benning Animal Hospital on Fort Benning Road Friday, according to a Columbus Police report.

An employee of the veterinary hospital met with police Saturday at about 11:35 a.m., after discovering damage to the property. The employee told police that the screens on the side of the building had been removed during a break-in, which the business estimated occurred between 8 p.m. on Friday and Saturday at about 11:30 a.m.
