STOCKTON – Items were stolen from the Pacific Little League just hours before its season debut.
Police were called to investigate the league's temporary storage container that was burglarized on Wednesday night or early Thursday morning in Victory Park. The shipping container itself was only a few days old and locked.
"We actually moved in the generator and the food yesterday so it was kind of interesting to get the call from the city it had been broken into," said Pacific Little League Vice President Justin Rabara.
Rabara said it appears the person or people involved cut open the metal container leaving the locks in place.
He said their generator was taken, along with food items, including nachos, nacho cheese, and candy.
Thursday night was the league's Opening Ceremonies and just before it, they realized their American flag was also taken.
