The 25 pitching machines and other baseball gear had been stolen from several high schools on the Westside and in Orange County.

Santa Monica High School reported that more than $10,000 in baseball equipment, including three pitching machines, had been stolen.

News sources reported that the owner of the Orange County sports equipment store had been cooperating with investigators from the Orange County Sheriff’s Department regarding the case.

No arrests have been made, according to news accounts.

Los Angeles Police Department detectives, who had been investigating the equipment stolen from the Westside, were not available for comment at Argonaut press time.
