The Nanaimo Boys and Girls Club of Nanaimo have been hit hard by a recent rash of thefts.
In the past two months, there have been 8 reported thefts from their Fifth Street location.
Most have involved gas being syphoned and gas lines cut on vehicles.
Recently installed security cameras have also been tampered with or outright stolen.
When gas lines are cut the vehicle requires a mechanical inspection which puts it out of commission for several days and results in the cancellation of scheduled day trips for the kids.
Linda Janes, Area Coordinator for the Nanaimo Boys and Girls Club says they have tried locking gas caps, moving vehicles to more visible locations, installing flood lights and security cameras.
She says none of those measures have had any impact.
