Details

The MPD is investigating several similar thefts that have occurred at Badger Gymnastics, 6901 Schroeder Rd. The most recent took place Sunday night when a young man entered the facility and fled with a 20-year old member's backpack. It was recovered outside, but the victim's wallet was gone. Just prior to the crime, another member spotted the suspect inside the building and asked if he needed help. The visitor said he wanted to become a member. The witness went to find someone who could help with that, and that is when the backpack was taken. There have been two other recent thefts at Badger Gymnastics, and the MPD is working with staff on ways to beef up security.
