THEFT: Kayaks, Paddles, and Gear

On their way back from the Junior Olympics in North Carolina, Max Karlsson, Nico Tonazzi, and Lauren Burress became the victims when 3 boats and 5 paddles, as well as a clothes bag and a food box were stolen from the Burress's truck and trailer in Sullivan, Indiana.

Thank you for posting this for us. Also they stole Nico's North Face duffle bag that contained all of his clothes, a pair of shoes, a coat and some nice climbing gear. They cut every piece of climbing rope we had to remove the boats and paddles. Also taken was tote full of food, silverware, and stuff. This was a horrible ending for the kids and I am hoping that everyone will be on the lookout for the paddles and boats.

Thanks again,
Kathleen Burress

That really sucks. I'm surprised to hear that kind of thievery going on in small town Mid-America. I'm assuming they were at a hotel on their travels home.
Karma is like this: If we set causes in motion the effects come back to us.

We have alerted all of the pawn shops in Indiana and the conservation officers in the whole state are on the look out. We were actually staying at Nathan's mom and dads house when it happened.
