CHARLOTTE, N.C. (AP) - Police in Charlotte say two bags of money raised by volunteers for a local high school were stolen from Bank of America Stadium during last weekend’s football game.

According to multiple media outlets, a police report says two bags of money were taken from two vending stations near the stadium’s South Gate Sunday night as the Carolina Panthers were playing the Pittsburgh Steelers. Together, the two bags contained more than $1,700.

Indian Land High School Principal David Shamble says a volunteer told him that while they were packing up after the third quarter, two men asked and argued to be served beer. It’s believed the argument was meant to distract the volunteers.

Shamble said the volunteers are trying to raise money for booster clubs, including $35,000 for new band uniforms.
