$50+ In Coins and a Gatorade Stolen From Krape Park Concession Stand

Freeport, Illinois — Freeport’s Krape Park is a beautiful environment enjoyed by all who go there for its wonderful park amenities such as boats, mini-golf, tennis, or simply sitting by the dam enjoying the day, just to name a few.

An added benefit of the park are the concessions where young people, (usually high school aged kids) enjoy having a summer job, and we as park goers get to enjoy a snack, something to drink or even a meal during our visit.

While most of us understand the concept of how a concession stand in a park environment works, this past weekend someone got a little confused it appears, and seems to have had something else in mind.

The Freeport Police report that the Krape Park concession stand was broken into sometime between Saturday evening around 8:00 through Sunday morning around 10:00.

Police said the break-in resulted in $50 to $70 in coins being stolen. Along with the coins, the thief (or thieves) also took one Gatorade. Police said the entrance to the concession stand was forced open by the perpetrators.

The potential punishment?

If the value of the stolen property is $300 or less and it was not stolen directly from another person then the theft conviction is Class A Misdemeanor which carries a possible sentence of up to one year in jail and a fine of up to $2,500.

That of course doesn’t factor in special circumstances that may make the punishment more severe such as the location of the theft, the victim of the theft, and the perpetrator’s criminal history.

Up to one year in jail and a fine of up to $2,500 for $50-$70 in coins, and a Gatorade.

If you have any information about this crime, contact the Freeport Police Department at 815-235-8222.
