A tough break for some Scouts in Nanaimo.
RCMP say the Boy Scout Hut was broken into last week.
$1500 dollars worth of camping gear was stolen.
That includes 4 green Northern Escape tents marked “1st Nanaimo,” a Cuisinart 8-piece stacking pot set in a cloth carrying bag, a black backpack with a first aid kit, and a black plastic toolbox with a red handle.
Constable Gary O’Brien says the loss of the items will hurt the kids.
“Sadly, local outings will be on hold or cancelled until such time fundraising efforts are commenced to replace the stolen items.”
