Volunteers: Baseball equipment stolen from Bridgeport’s North End Little League
BRIDGEPORT - Volunteers with Bridgeport's North End Little League say thousands of dollars worth of equipment was stolen from their park last month.
Volunteers say security cameras were not pointed toward the storage containers at the fields of Thorme Street that were targeted by thieves.
North End Little League Director of Operations Michael Federici says the containers were secured with locks and he has an idea regarding who may be responsible.

"I don't think it was kids. I think it was somebody who knew what they were looking for and knew what they were doing," said Federici. He says the culprits made-off with a leaf-blower, weed whacker and thousands of dollars of baseball equipment.
Federici says the storage containers have been reinforced and security cameras have been re-coordinated.
The league celebrated their Opening Day on Friday.
