Surfboards for people with disabilities stolen
Two surfboards specially crafted to be used by people with disabilities have been stolen.
Coordinators with the non-profit AccesSurf said the boards were taken from one of its vehicles Saturday night or early Sunday morning on St. Louis Heights.
Two 12-foot-long boards crucial to the program were stolen. Each month the non-profit takes 70 people with disabilities and their families surfing.
"It's pretty shocking," said Cara Troy of AccesSurf. "I know that people take boards and take things that are not theirs. But, these boards are very specific to a really important program."
AccesSurf just wants the surfboards returned, no questions asked.
