SOMERS POINT — Volunteers on Saturday put the Little League snack stand back together after a break-in.

When volunteers arrived at the stand Oct. 5, they found the doorjamb was broken along with the lock, said Dan Foreman, president of Somers Point Little League. Chocolate syrup was smeared on the floor, the empty cash register was missing, soda was spilled and all the candy was gone. Some items were taken from the freezer, but the freezer was left open, leaving everything defrosted and unusable, Foreman said.

Foreman said a police report was filed and officers came to assess the damage.

Locksmith Paul Huber, a member of the Somers Point Recreation Board, replaced the locks and repaired the doorjamb.

“People have been so generous, and that is really the silver lining to all of this, that our community really does care,” volunteer Jessica Farrell said.
