NEWARK, Del. (AP) - Thieves have stolen a set of new bleachers from a Delaware school.
The bleachers were taken from Christ the Teacher Catholic School in Newark. The school's principal says thieves made off with the bleachers at some point between late Friday night and Monday night. The principal, Sister LaVerne King, says she believes thieves needed a truck to take the bleachers. They were made of aluminum and believed to weigh more than 800 pounds.
The school recently bought four sets of bleachers for a field where students play baseball and softball. Each set cost the school $1,200 plus $200 for delivery. Three sets remain.
