$7K In Equipment Stolen From A Little League Team In Vegas

LAS VEGAS (AP) — Thousands of dollars’ worth of equipment has been stolen from Mountain Ridge Little League team in Las Vegas, according to authorities.

League president Jimmy Belanger told TV station Fox 5 that vandals broke into the concession’s building between last Wednesday night and Thursday afternoon.

Belanger said thieves made off with $150 from a cash register and up to $7,000 worth of other equipment.

He said among the items stolen were some public address sound systems, scoreboard controllers and a defibrillator device.

Belanger expects the team’s insurance policy will cover most, but it may take a couple years to get all of the stolen equipment replaced.

Mountain Ridge went to the Little League World Series in Williamsport, Pennsylvania in 2014.
