FAYETTEVILLE, N.C. (AP) -- Investigators say someone stole thousands of dollars in equipment from a Fayetteville youth athletic facility, but was thoughtful enough to apologize for the damage they caused and praise the target for its work.
The Cumberland County Sheriff's Office said a thief or thieves broke into 360 Elite Baseball Academy late on Jan. 16. Taken were three television sets, a computer, baseball uniforms, batting gloves, sports team necklaces and candy. Sheriff's office spokeswoman Debbie Tanna said whoever took the equipment entered through a back door.
In the midst of the mess, a note was discovered. It read, "Sorry about the mess and the drywall damage, I think what you are doing here is a good thing."
The academy offers training for teams and individuals in baseball and softball.
