Correction: Fire Marshall Bill Tyler said the key box broken into at Good Shepherd Lutheran Church was not a Knox box as previously reported in the police log. Knox boxes are used by commercial businesses that have a fire protection system and allow access to fire departments in case of emergency. According to Tyler they cannot be broken into and are guaranteed by the company as secure. Businesses with questions can call the Novato Fire District at 878-2690.
