Nanaimo high school football team's storage room burglarized

A public address system and other items were stolen from the Barsby Bulldogs football team when someone broke into the team's storage room Wednesday night.

Thieves disabled the alarm system to get in the team's outbuilding at John Barsby Community School. Once inside they pried open a smaller room and made off with public address speakers and related sound equipment and accessories, a tool box and a pair of size-15, black high-top cleats.

The stolen speakers were black and measured 0.9 by 0.6 metres.  A Tupperware container was also taken, which contained accessories for the PA system, including a CD player, motherboard, extension cords and plugs.

Police are viewing video security camera footage of the incident.

Anyone with information about this break-in is asked to please call Const. Denis Fraser at Nanaimo RCMP detachment at 250-754-2345 or contact Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-8477 or online at www.nanaimocrimestoppers.com.
