Police are seeking the public’s assistance in locating stolen equipment belonging to New West Little League.

The New Westminster Police Department is asking the public for information or CCTV footage that may help in locating stolen equipment belonging to the New West Little League. Some time between January and April, thieves stole a large green steel storage box, containing baseball equipment value at about $3,000, from Grimston Park.

“These thieves are hurting our community by targeting local sports,” said NWPD Sgt. Andrew Leaver. “Whatever the reason behind someone wanting to do this, they need to realize they are depriving our youth, our athletes, and our community as a whole with these thefts.”

The Greenlee brand box measured approximately four feet long by two feet deep by 2.5 feet high. The box’s contents included baseball bats and bases, some of which are marked with “NWBA”.

New West police are asking residents living near Grimston Park to check CCTV for footage of the thefts. Anyone having information they believe may further this investigation is asked to call the New Westminster Police Department and reference file number 24-80122.

New West Little League isn’t the only sports group to have equipment stolen by thieves.

Earlier this year, the police department sought the public’s help in locating New West Soccer Club equipment that had been stolen from Glenbrook Middle School and Hume Park locations. Sometime between March 19 and 27, thieves made off with four large steel storage boxes containing about $15, 000 in soccer equipment.
