RED BLUFF, Calif. - The Red Bluff Little League has a recurring theft problem, but the most recent one cost them the most money by far.

A couple weeks ago someone stole a $1,400 stereo system from the Red Bluff Little League field.
They've had theft problems in the past, but this one has the community beyond frustrated.

"I mean you're stealing from kids, you're not stealing from me you're stealing from four-year-olds all the way up to 13-years-olds that play in this league," said the Thomas Hyatt, director of baseball.

The community helped donate money in February to buy the stereo system. The unidentified person broke into a cabinet to take the stereo, and climbed on top of the announcers booth to take the speakers.

The Red Bluff Police Department assured the little league board that they are making nightly runs to the field.

Hyatt said the field is open 24/7, so unfortunately its not uncommon to find empty alcohol bottles or people sleeping in the dugouts.

"We're gonna try and lock it up a little bit better than it's been before," Hyatt said. "We have some steel reinforced doors that they still figured out how to bust into, so we have a company coming out this afternoon to weld in some new brackets."

Back in May, someone broke into the snack bar and stole cash, candy and a bunch of drinks. They pried open the door with a crow bar damaging the concrete of the snack bar.

They took netting from off the pitching practice area- probably to carry all the stuff they stole.

A very frustrated Hyatt has a message for the community, "If you know of anybody that had a whole bunch of blue Gatorade's a few months back all of a sudden, about 80 to 100 of them they're probably a suspicious type person."

The Fall season starts up in a couple weeks, but Hyatt doesn't think they'll have a new stereo system ready in time. Although, he said he'll make sure a new stereo system will be all set for the Spring season starting in March.

"We want this to be a safe place for kids, so we're asking the community to please if you have no business at the little league field to please stay away from it," Hyatt said.

The little league board asks, if you see anyone that has a new outdoor sound system with three-and-a-half-foot tall black speakers, to please contact them.

A disturbance moved over northern California and the rest of the Pacific Northwest this afternoon. It brought more gusty wind like yesterday, and cooler air, but only isolated rain showers. It will be much quieter this weekend with a late summer warmup.
