LAS VEGAS (CBS Las Vegas) — Hundreds of pounds of clothing meant for Big Brothers Big Sisters in Las Vegas have reportedly been stolen.

The organization says the usual way for thieves to go about this is to follow trucks into the neighborhoods and grab the clothes before the drivers.

“It disturbs me deeply,” Patrick Casteel, truck driver for Big Brothers Big Sisters, told KLAS-TV.

“A lot of times, they will have unmarked personal vehicles with cages on the back, walking up to the house, taking the product and selling it at some off-site location, completely stealing from Big Brothers Big Sisters and the children,” Castell told the station.

Kobbe Shaw, director of development for Big Brothers Big Sisters of Southern Nevada, says this is nothing new. 

“These guys will sit behind our drivers, and then go down a neighborhood and be a good block-and-a-half away where our driver won’t be able to catch up with them,” he told KLAS-TV.

Big Brothers Big Sisters are asking people to start watching and put their donations out the front doors where homeowners can see them.

A Las Vegas Metropoliatan Police Department spokesperson told CBS Las Vegas that only one other report has been filed and it involved stealing from the bin on the street.

There are no suspects in the case.

    Illegals stealing everything, yet another violation of our rights. Add it to the list of gov’t violations of our rights:
    They violate the 1st Amendment by placing protesters in cages, banning books like “America Deceived II” and censoring the internet.
    They violate the 2nd Amendment by confiscating guns.
    They violate the 4th and 5th Amendment by molesting airline passengers.
    They violate the entire Constitution by starting undeclared wars for foreign countries.
    Impeach Obama, vote for Ron Paul.
