T-shirts Go Missing at Big Apple Roll

By Planet staff

ISkateNYF2002T-shirts emblazoned with Lady Liberty on skates apparently looked pretty good to thieves in New York City on Sunday.

They helped themselves to more than 150 of them.

The T-shirts were the property of the Empire Skate Club, which organized the weekend's Big Apple Roll.

Organizers had hoped to sell the T-shirts to defray the cost of putting on the annual weekend skate party, which was free of charge this year. But during one of the group skates, someone stole several boxes of medium, large and extra large T-shirts.

Organizers had left the T-shirts at the concierge area of the Skyline Hotel, which was headquarters for the Big Apple Roll.

Empire Skate president Rob Henkle estimated the loss at more than $1000.

So far, authorities have no suspects.

Henkle asks skaters to keep their eyes open at events and online for the missing tees. They won't be hard to spot: just look for the Empire Skate web address (www.empireskate.org) and Lady Liberty (as in Statue of Liberty) going for a roll.
