By: Ashlei KingSCHERTZ - The Buffalo Valley Youth Association in Schertz said it was targeted by thieves twice in two weeks and organizers believe it was an inside job.BVYA President Johnie McDow said the first theft happened two weeks ago when someone stole two football blocking sleds from a storage garage off FM 1518. "The five man blocking sled assembled is about 1000 pounds, so it's not something you just throw on the back of your truck by yourself and just haul off," McDow explained.He said the second crime happened this week at the organizations main headquarters on Schertz Parkway. He believes someone entered their storage garage and stole a John Deere Gator."We've never had two thefts as close together of large equipment like we did this time," he said.McDow fears it was an inside jobs since all coaches and many parent volunteers have access to the garage by punching in a simple code."The idea being is that that would make it easier for our coaches and of course that may have come back to bite us when it was all over," he said.McDow told FOX San Antonio the crook likely entered using the safety code and then drove away with the gator."I don't ever remember one of our members, one of our people, or someone that's been in our organization or part of our organization that has intentionally done something like this," McDow said.More than $11,000 worth of equipment is now gone, which is a tough blow for an organization that relies heavily on fundraisers."Everything that we have is bought through the efforts of our parents," he said. "When you have someone come in and they take something, it's disappointing."The garage code has already been changed and now McDow is focusing on upgrading security. He plans to file a police report on Monday.
