Thieves Score Big at Sports Park
Officials say thieves have stolen more than $8,000 worth of equipment from the McComb Sports Complex. Everything from nuts and blots, to the very bleachers that fans sit in, were taken from the park and from a nearby shed. The shed was also damaged. Mayor Whitney Rawlings said the city board will have to approve a budget amendment in order to replace the equipment. Last week’s burglary was the second break-in at the park in one last week. The first incident was a vehicle burglary. Rawlings said city officials are planning to invest in heavier security at the sports park.
