Thousands of dollars worth of youth football equipment stolen

Community

SHREVEPORT, La. (KTAL/KMSS) – Just a month before the start of their season, a local youth football team is grappling with the discovery that all of their equipment has been stolen.

Shreveport Warriors Coach Robert Webster says he noticed the trailer was missing Tuesday when he went to get it to take to practice.

He says it was parked behind Play it Again Sports on East 70th Street in Shreveport, filled with $6,000.00 worth of equipment. The discovery of the missing trailer and all the equipment forced the cancellation of practice Tuesday and Wednesday.

“These are young boys from the age seven to twelve with five different teams on our organization and without equipment, we can’t properly teach them,” Coach Webster said.

The team has also started a gofundme account to replace the equipment.

Anyone with any information on the trailer and where it might be is asked to contact police immediately.
