A week after participating in an Independence Day parade in Vail, someone broke into the storage unit where the car was kept. The lock had been broken.

The group filed a report with Tucson police.

According to the Shriners, they noticed the theft when they went to practice and noticed that the storage unit where they keep the cars was unlocked. They opened the unit and the Blue Angel mini car was missing.

After a further investigation by the Shriners, they discovered that someone cut through a fence and then used bolt cutters to get into the storage unit.

Just a few days later, the Shriners were victimized again. This time spare tires and an air compressor were taken from a building where they more of the blue cars are kept.

Now the Shriners are asking for the community to help them out. Shriners are known around the country and right here in southern Arizona for helping children. Their mission is to provide medical care for kids that need prosthetics, kids who have burns and kids who have orthopedic needs. The children get the care free of charge from the Shriners.

If you have any information about the case, call 88-CRIME or the Sabbar Shrine at 520-624-2509.
