Workers at the Lincoln Home National Historic Site in Springfield are reviewing security procedures after a man broke in to the basement.

Jordan Clark was sentenced to time served and ordered to pay $3,000 in restitution. Authorities say he may have been trying to steal copper wire from the property.

Site superintendent Dale Phillips says the break-in was the first workers at the property can remember. Phillips says employees with go over security procedures, but said police and park rangers were alerted by a security alarm and arrived within minutes of the break-in.
