MEMPHIS, Tenn. (WREG) -- Memphis Police are investigating an overnight break-in at the National Civil Rights Museum.
Police say a man threw a rock through one of the museum’s second floor windows late Tuesday.
When officers arrived, they found the man asleep on a bed inside Room 308 of the old Lorraine Motel.
The room is just a few doors down from Room 306 the room outside of which Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. was assassinated on April 4, 1968.
At this time, investigators say it appears nothing was taken from the museum but windows were broken in rooms 307 and 308.
Dexter Anderson is charged with vandalism over $500 and Criminal Trespass.
