FIELDS LANDING- Thieves took thousands of dollars in equipment Sunday night from a Humboldt Bay Sea Scouts storage facility.
The Sea Scouts organization is a co-ed branch of the Boy Scout Club that teaches kids ages 14 to 21 leadership and life skills through aquatic activities.
The thieves broke into the storage facility through a window, leaving with the organization’s canoe, kayak, rubber raft, paddles, outboard motor and other items. The total damages are estimated to be more than $2,500.
“Those are things that the youth had access to that they could take out any time that they want,” said Sea Scouts Skipper Bryan Enloe. “It's so that they have recreational activities to do so they're not preoccupying their time with other items.”
The thieves have not yet been caught. Harbor officials are currently looking through nearby security footage for leads.
