CEDAR SPRINGS, Mich. — Officials say the concessions building at Boomer Park was the target of a morning break-in and burglary Saturday morning.

Members of the AYSO Region 902 say they made the discovery around 8 a.m. Saturday at the Cedar Springs facility.

The window was reportedly cracked open and $500-600 was discovered stolen from the cash register, according to board members, who said the money is used to keep costs reasonable for players and help with tournaments.

"It goes toward our field maintenance," said Anna Nozkowski, the regional commissioner. "There's paint we have to purchase, equipment, soccer balls, nets, flags, uniforms."

Nozkowski said this incident is similar to other recent break-ins at nearby Skinner Field.

"We put a lot of work into this and they're just taking from the kids, this is all volunteer," she told FOX 17. "None of us get paid to be out here and you see what's going on just games lots of volunteers; parents, grandparents, so they're are directly stealing from kids."

The Kent County Sheriff's Department is investigating.

    The police should be looking for a man that looks like D J Qualls, the actor that like to comment “you want to snap into a Slim Jim, Sargeant?” From the movie Delta Farce, featuring Larry the Cable Guy and Bill Engvall.
