Thieves hit city's sports complex; steal bleachers

MCCOMB — Officials say thieves have stolen more than $8,000 worth of equipment from the McComb Sports Complex.

The Enterprise-Journal reports everything from nuts and blots to the very bleachers that fans sit in were taken from the park and from a nearby shed. The shed was also damaged.

Mayor Whitney Rawlings said the city board will have to approve a budget amendment in order to replace the equipment.

Last week’s burglary was the second break-in at the park in one week. The first incident was a vehicle burglary.

Rawlings said city officials are planning to invest in heavier security at the sports park.
