BATTLE CREEK, Mich. — Thousands of returnable cans and bottles collected by Boy Scouts in the Battle Creek area have been stolen. Members of Boy Scout Troop 329 had collected the 10-cent containers when stores weren’t accepting returnables because of the coronavirus.
They had planned to get more than $1,000 to buy bikes or pay for camping and other projects.
Scoutmaster Charles Burdick of Springfield told police that the bottles and cans were stolen from a garage in Bedford Township. Burdick had last checked the garage on June 9.
