"Somebody must have been watching us because they took the trailer from where we placed it," said Alfred Deluna, organizer of "Knight of the Shields."
A huge trailer clearly marked as the Oakland Raiders Booster Club storing thousands of dollars worth of fireworks attracted the eyes of bandits overnight.
"Someone who really wants to watch you and steal your stuff will do it regardless," said Deluna.
Deluna says he loaded up the trailer with all the fireworks and Raiders merchandise, locked up, and left it at a friend's neighborhood on Fowler and Belmont; the following morning it was no where to be found.
"I'm not sure where it was but CHP found it this morning," said Deluna.
The truck was found swept clean every single firework stolen right out of the trailer.
Neighboring firwork stands like this one say they too are taking extra precaution after last night's incident.
"We drive the truck back to the office," said Mayyia Lor.
Even if Deluna and his fellow 'Knights of the Shield' crew are disappointed in the crooks who stole their goods, they're determined to make up for what they lost.
"We're not out of the game, it's not over yet," said Deluna.
