Bleachers Stolen from Region 8 Little League Field

MARCH 27, 2006 - Posted at 4:17 p.m. CST

 

BALD KNOB, AR - Someone has made off with a set of heavy-duty aluminum bleachers from the Little League fields at Bald Knob.

Each of the bleachers is about 15 feet long, has three seats, and is worth about $5,000. 

They disappeared sometime earlier this month.

Bald Knob Police Chief Larry Landis says he believes the bleachers were hauled out in a trailer.

An award for information in the case now stands at $400.

Lester Butler, a business owner, put up part of the reward.

He says the thieves stole from the whole town and from the kids who use the park.  He says he believes the bleachers may have been sold for scrap metal.
