On Friday, CYFL board member Mike Rader contacted The Brazil Times to see if anyone might have information regarding the theft of the public announcement system and the wireless microphone system taken from the field house sometime between Tuesday evening and Thursday morning.
"The program can't afford this type of theft," Rader said about the missing electronic systems valued at more than $1,000. "We used the PA and the wireless microphones for everything during the games and used them to notify the parents (during practices and other events) about necessary information."
Rader confirmed a report has been filed with the Clay County Sheriff's Department, but hopes someone will be able to provide information for investigators.
"(The PA system and microphones) were secured to a table made specifically for the systems by PDF, Inc., that was secured to the wall, but they still broke the table to get to it," Rader said. "We really hope that someone will come forward if they know anything about what happened or if someone tries to sell this type of equipment."
To report information about this investigation, or any other crime, contact the Clay County Sheriff's Department at 446-2535.
