Thieves steal baseball mascot’s quad-runner

A recent break-in at Diamond Baseball Stadium has the Lake Elsinore Storm in need of someone with a good nose for sniffing out clues.

Thieves broke into a storage locker on Tuesday and made off with a quad-runner, used by the team’s mascot, Thunder.

“We’ve never really had a problem with this before so it is an isolated incident for the most part. I don’t know if they knew what was back there or not, but they found the quad,” said the stadium’s director of ticketing, J.T. Onyett.

Team officials believe the thieves cut the lock to the shed, hotwired the bright green quad and drove off, leaving behind a few foot prints and not much else, much to Thunder’s devastation.
