The Coastal Bend Thunder won three out of four games over the weekend, but burglars spoiled what should have been a time of celebration.
Sometime early Saturday morning, burglars broke into the clubhouse at Fairgrounds Field in Robstown and took items that included gloves, shoes, bats and electronics. The burglars also took several uniform jerseys, but the team still had enough jerseys for the players at Saturday night's game, Co-General Manager Ray Hunt said Tuesday.
The cost of the stolen items is estimated at more than $7,000, Hunt said.
Since the break-in, Hunt said the team has increased security at the field.
"Security will be patrolling the parking lot at night," Hunt said. "We're just making sure everything is locked up."
Det. Arturo Gonzalez, with the Robstown Police Department, said Tuesday tips from the community led to the recovery of half of the stolen items. Several suspects have been questioned in the case, but no arrests have been made yet, Gonzalez said.
Anyone with information related to the burglary is asked to call the Robstown Police Department tip line at 387-TIPS. All calls will remain anonymous.
