Shirts stolen from breast cancer nonprofit in Yonkers

Posted: Updated:
YONKERS -

A nonprofit says that shirts they created to raise money were stolen during a car break-in on Central Avenue near Roosevelt High School this weekend.

The Yonkers Police Department says the area has seen an increase in break-ins.

Maura Sherman of Ninja For a Cure says she raises money for the Breast Cancer Research Foundation, and that the shirts cost nearly $1,000 to make.

Sherman says the setback is going to hurt, especially considering the shirts were made for charity.

Police say they see a higher number of these types of crimes during the holidays, and the best thing for people to do is to lock their car and call authorities if they see anything out of the ordinary.
