The equipment included a 24-foot-long football trap chute weighing 650 pounds and worth more than $3,000.

Also taken was a 5-row, 15-foot-long set of aluminum bleachers, along with football sleds and a mower.

The equipment, too big to be stored indoors, was kept in the back of the property, a little west of Self Help and near a wooded area. Due to the size of the equipment, SYO believes several individuals are involved and that they likely used a truck that entered the property by driving over the curbing on Southampton Road.

As for a motive, SYO believes scrappers could have been responsible.

Anyone with information can call Northeast Detectives at 215-686-3153. ••
