WACO (AP) — There’s nothing sweet about this crime.

A nonprofit group in Waco says someone stole a barbeque pit that was the grand prize of a scholarship raffle. The 16-foot-long pit is valued at $7,500 and was being offered by the Brazos Education Foundation.

The foundation’s grants and development coordinator tells the Waco Tribune-Herald that the thief appears to have cut a padlock and taken the pit and trailer from a carport behind the group’s building.

The foundation awards scholarships to students in McLennan County, which includes Waco and West.

Anyone with information about the theft is urged to contact Waco police.
