A news release from the Maui Canoe Club stated that about $2,000 worth of shirts, visors and rash guards were stolen from one of the club's storage sheds on Sugar Beach on Saturday, Oct. 20.
The logo wear was to be sold to members and visitors to raise funds for the nonprofit club's operations, including maintenance and purchasing of canoes, said Mike Elam, vice president of the club.
Elam said he did not know exactly how many items were in the shed, but they included men's cotton T-shirts and tank tops in red, white and royal blue; women's cotton tank tops in black, pink and aqua blue; long-sleeve rash guards in black and white; and visors and baseball caps in several colors.
All items are identifiable by embroidered or screened Maui Canoe Club logo,
Elam asks the public to keep an eye out for the club's logo wear and report sellers to police.
The club also has a standing reward of $1,000 for information leading to the prosecution of the person currently in possession of the club's boat trailer EZ Loader EZB 14-17 2000. The vehicle identification number is 1ZEAAAKD7AA003364. It was stolen in May.
The club also has had picnic tables and a sailing canoe stolen in the past year, said Elam. The canoe was recovered, but the mast was lost.
"We are going to take additional security precautions," he said.
Those with information about the thefts and burglaries may call the club at 283-6788 or Maui police at 244-6400.
