Break-in reported at assistant city manager Allison Baker's home

Posted: Updated:

The Columbia Police Department is investigating a burglary at the home of senior assistant city manager S. Allison Baker.

Police responded to the home on Cedar Top Lane in northwest Columbia around 10:00 Sunday morning.

Police said the homeowner, identified as Baker through property records, returned to the Chestnut Hill Plantation residence and noticed that someone forced entry to the back door.

The only thing reported missing was a large glass container of coins, police said.

Baker was at the center of the alleged "black ops" plan that has plagued the Columbia Police Department since late 2013.

Former police Capt. David Navarro said he was approached by then-Deputy Chief Ruben Santiago to help set Baker up to get fired by planting a gun and drugs in his car.

A SLED investigation in the allegations and subsequent review by an Upstate solicitor found no evidence of any criminal wrongdoing. The report did indicate Interim Chief Santiago may not have been fully truthful with investigators during the investigation.

If you have information about the burglary, you are urged to call Crimestoppers at 1-888-CRIME-SC.
