DETROIT (AP) - A nonprofit community center on Detroit’s east side that’s working to offer summer programing has been struck by theft and arson.

The Detroit News reports (https://detne.ws/20693MV ) a Brighter Detroit Community Center van was set on fire Tuesday while it was parked in a fenced-in lot. Several of the nonprofit’s vehicles had been stripped Monday and a day earlier a warehouse was hit by thefts.

The newspaper say stolen goods included ATVs, flat-screen TVs, power washers and lawn mowers that would have been sold to raise money for the nonprofit.

Tips are being sought from the public in the case.
