One local baseball league was surprised to drive by their fields Monday morning only to realize their equipment had been stolen.
"It's unfortunate. I don't look at it as them stealing from me, these thieves stole from the kids. Every dime that we put in this program, we bring in, goes back into the program. We cannot absorb a $15,000 loss. We've had other programs already call this morning and offer their help loaning us equipment until we can replace ours," Pokorney said.
Officials say the suspects also tried to pry open a trailer, which is used in the next week at the Fall Festival. Members say had the inside been vandalized, it could have eliminated one of their biggest fundraisers.
Officials say they are offering a $1,500 reward to anyone with information that leads to a conviction.
