Stolen equipment hurts kids


Over $11,000 worth of athletic equipment and electronics were stolen from a storage unit owned by Carencro Area Youth Sports Incorporated. The theft took place this past weekend and was discovered when the volunteer based organization was there assisting kids with basketball sign-up.

Upon arrival they saw all eight locks on both of their portable storage units cut. Upon entering they noticed sporting equipment and the equipment which operates their score board, missing. CAYSI volunteer Rodney "Cooney" Richard said he doesn't know how the organization is going to replace the equipment but they will try their best.

Richard goes on to say he doesn't know what kind of person would steal from kids but that's what they did by taking the items. CAYSI is accepting donations that would help replace what was stolen. If you'd like to help, visit their website at where contact information is available.

The purpose of the CAYSI Association is to provide the children with quality instructional athletic programs that promote teamwork, build self-esteem, and increase skill knowledge in safe, non-threatening environments.
