INDIANAPOLIS — Police are trying to find whoever stole a trailer full of sports equipment from Brookside Park, on the northeast side of downtown Indy.
Andrew Neal, director for Brookside Community Play, says the trailer had $20,000 worth of sports equipment, like basketball goals, a portable soccer pitch, and a generator.
Brookside Community Play is an initiative to help children and families overcome trauma through sports. Over 250 people are expected to gather next week for the start, but it’s now in jeopardy of not happening at all.
“Our kids matter. They’re worth the investment,” Neal said. “Whoever took that trailer is going to have to think long and hard about what they’ve done and about who they’ve actually impacted.”
Neal filed a police report, but so far the search has come up empty. A Go Fund Me page has also been set up to replace the equipment.
