Employees of the Akron Beacon Journal have been moving to the paper's new offices on South Main Street this week. Furniture, files and computers have been organized and shuffled from the ABJ's home of more than eight decades to its new digs. Missing among its prized possessions: the Pulitzer Prize medal the paper won in 1984 for its coverage of race in the city.

An employee discovered the medal, which was in a plexiglass case on a display wall (you can see the set-up here), was missing and the case itself broken. Police have taken a report on the possible theft, which likely occurred between Tuesday and Thursday morning.
