Special To The Union
ARCATA – Thousands of dollars worth of fireworks were stolen from a locked storage unit adjacent to a Catalyst Church fireworks booth sometime Tuesday night or Wednesday morning. The booth, located in the Valley West shopping center, had only been open one day.
Thieves broke in and stole most of the expensive packages, which are valued at between $99.99 and $599.99 each.
The booth is sponsored by Arcata’s Catalyst Church to raise money for its HSU ministry and mission work. Insurance did not cover what was stolen.
The church is requesting public support so the booth can replenish lost funds through more sales.
