DESERT FOOTHILLS COMMUNITY ASSOCIATION – VICTIM OF THEFT
The DFCA has suffered a tremendous loss. Sometime between DFCA meetings held in May and June at the rodeo grounds, the DFCA fell victim to robbery. A huge “connex box” (large, metal storage container) containing DFCA property was removed from the rodeo grounds. This is no easy task. It would take a flat bed with the ability to “wench” the storage unit onto the truck along with the knowledge of how to actually do it, in order to remove the connex box and all its contents. To further puzzle the DFCA members, no evidence of broken locks, chains, or gates was determined.
Property value stolen is estimated to be between $15,000 to $18,000 and the DFCA members are devasted. Police reports were filed and the DFCA sincerely hopes the container and all DFCA property will be recovered.
Items known to be missing with actual or replacement values:
Connex box – value $2900, Arena lighting – value $8,000, Mutton bustin’ helmets – value $2,000, chairs and tables – value over $1,000, table cloths, linens, barware and VIP club decorations – value over $1,000, arena signage – value over $1,000
If you have ANY INFORMATION at all in regards to this theft that can lead to the recovery of DFCA property, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org immediately. Reward offered upon DFCA Board approval.
