TERRE HAUTE, Ind. (WTHI)- Police are following several leads after someone broke into the concession stand and attempted to break in again Monday night. 


That concession stand belonged to the West Terre Haute Little League.  

Nearly $2,000 in damage was done. 

According to little league officials they believe the break-in happened sometime Saturday night.

Steve Shaffer, board president, says the little league operates on volunteers. He says an incident like this hits home.

“We put a lot of blood sweat and tears into this park for the last five years,” Shaffer said.

For nearly six years he has served as the board president for the Terre Haute Little League.

Shaffer discovered the damage done Sunday morning when he came into work on some repairs.

He says the doors were pried open and materials that belonged to the league were all gone.

Shaffer also says roughly $900 of his own tools were taken.

He says whoever did this also tried setting the place on fire. Shaffer says not one time, but three times they tried. 

“This is a malicious attack,” he said. “You know this takes it to a whole other level.”

Shaffer says this is not the first incident they have had. He says about 15 years ago, the place was broken into. Whoever did it, cut a hole through the roof.

He says the building currently has six surveillance cameras. The league plans to get more installed for better security.

Shaffer says the next step is getting everything up and running by the time season starts in April.

He says they could use the public’s help. You can click here  to donate.

Police are still investigating. If you have any information you can call Crime Stoppers at 812-238-STOP.

"WE GOT OUR STUFF AND LEFT." WOMAN PUT IN UNCOMFORTABLE SITUATION AT A LOCAL GROCERY STORE

A local woman’s Facebook post is going viral. She says a scary event happened at a local grocery store.

TERRE HAUTE, Ind. (WTHI)- A local woman’s Facebook post is going viral. She says a scary event happened at a local grocery store.

Amy Thompson says her 7-year-old daughter was approached by a suspicious man at the Fresh Thyme on the south side of Terre Haute, last Friday night.

She says it’s an event that is hard to talk about.

“It’s hard to describe what you would do in that situation at the time,” Thompson said.

Thompson’s daughter had no idea that a family trip to the grocery store could put fear in her eyes.

“I know if he was to do something, I would have to put my hands on him,” Thompson said.

Thompson says her daughter went to use the restroom. That’s when Thompson says a man followed her daughter and waited outside the restrooms.

“I thought well that’s strange,” Thompson said. “I said ‘Melody [her daughter] I’ll be right here.’”

Thompson says she kept her distance because she wanted to see if the man would act and what his intentions were.

“He looked out of place. He was holding his phone and texting,” Thompson said. “He was looking at my son in the cart then at my husband. He didn’t have any groceries in his hand.”

But, without a doubt, she believes the man was going to take her daughter.

Thompson said something to the cashier, who then said this isn’t the first incident they’ve had with this man.

She says Fresh Thyme called the police and her family left the store immediately.

"We got our stuff and got ready to get out," Thompson said.

Thompson says she felt the urge to write a post on Facebook. She says she wanted to warn her friends and family.

"I was so upset," she said. 

John Moats, Vigo County Sheriff, says some of his co-workers discovered Thompson's post. 

"This is very serious," Thompson said. "If someone's child is being followed in a store, we need to know immediately."

Moats says this particular case is tricky because the sole source of information is through social media. 

"If they tell a clerk, great," Moats said. "But, they need to follow through and make sure an actual call was placed."

Thompson says she made a report on Sunday. Now, she says she is taking this situation as an opportunity to warn others.

Moats says to call 911 if you ever find yourself in a situation where you feel uncomfortable.

If you have any information about Thompson's case, you call call Crime Stoppers at 812-238-STOP.
