$13,000 stolen from Jesup Boy Scouts

Posted: Updated:
Thousands of dollars raised by eastern Iowa Boy Scouts has been stolen.
Jesup Cub Scouts from Pack 3095 and Boy Scouts from Troop 1095 raised nearly $12,000 serving meals during Jesup Farmers Days; all of that money, including more than $1,000 they had from their own account was reported stolen.
The Scouts say early Sunday morning, someone broke into the Scout booth in downtown Jesup and took the money.
"You can imagine our pain to learn all the money from the booth had been stolen," said Scoutmaster Kyle Troyer. "One of the Scout laws says 'A Scout is Cheerful,' meaning that we look on the bright side of life. We are doing our best as we rally together to look on the positive side of what was a wonderful weekend, and just would like the community to know how much their support meant to us."
Police are investigating. If you're interested in helping replace the stolen money, there are accounts set up at BankIowa and Farmers State Bank locations in Jesup; there is also a GoFundMe page.
