ELLISON – A pair of large, steel-framed, wood bleachers were stolen from a ballpark in Kelowna's Ellison neighbourhood sometime during the past two weeks.

The bleachers are steel-framed with wooden benches and worth approximately $1,000 each.

“This may be one of the strangest thefts in recent history,” Crime Stoppers says.
