Little League shed burglarized again

shed1For the second time in less than five months, someone has broken into the Riverhead Little League shed in Stotzky Park and stolen from the organization.

Police received a call at 8:05 a.m. today after a buildings and grounds employee stumbled upon the damage, which included busting through the door to the little league’s concession stand.

But after the shed was broken into in April, and thieves made off with over $800 in cash and equipment, they weren’t quite as lucky this time. League President Tony Sammartano said since then, they’ve kept much less cash on hand in the register – which the burglars reportedly walked away with.

“We left some change in the drawers and a couple singles,” he said this morning. “Maybe they got away with $40.”

Police were on scene this morning and Sammartano said a crime unit is expected to head over sometime before noon. Though police are currently tied up searching for a couple who reportedly robbed the CVS on Route 58 this morning. In addition, a criminal mischief was reported at an EPCAL business.

Sammartano said whoever broke into the shed walked out with some Starburst and soda, as well as the register itself.

Money raised at the concession stand pays for the league’s umpires.
