“There was no robbery in the museum. What happened was that the Consorcio Pachacamac company, which is installing night lighting for the sanctuary, had their copper cables on site. The thieves broke in and stole the cables, but that was outside. They didn’t break into the museum,” said representatives from the ministry.
Director of the Pachacamac museum Denise Pozzi-Scott told media that tours had been suspended in the area due to police investigations of the thefts. But she asserted that operations would be back to normal starting tomorrow. “Yesterday [the museum] was closed for a moment, but we’re not going to close mid-week. Today it is closed for installation maintenance,” she informed tour operators and the general public.
