Boys & Girls Clubs offers reward for stolen air conditioners
Published on Mon, Jul 15, 2013 (3:23 p.m.)
Late last week, several large air conditioning units were stolen from the roof of the Boys & Girls Clubs’ Robindale Clubhouse, 2980 Robindale Road (Eastern & Robindale). Damage is estimated at more than $25,000. The large clubhouse serves more than 150 kids a day; and at this time, a large portion of the clubhouse is without air conditioning.
The Boys & Girls Clubs is offering a $1,000 cash reward for information leading to the arrest of the thieves. To report information, call 702/253-2802 for the incident report number and non-emergency police department number to call.
A private supporter of the nonprofit organization donated the reward money.
Media Note: If you would like to come the Robindale Clubhouse and see the area where the theft occurred, call Ken Rubeli, Boys & Girls Clubs CEO at 702/408-5268 or 702/253-2802. There are stairs leading to the roof.
