LOUISVILLE, KY (WAVE) - Stolen basketball jerseys belonging to The Brown School were found on Tuesday, after the school had raised money to new ones.
School officials searched everywhere for the missing jerseys on Monday, after finding the basketball coach's car broken into. They even searched all night long, in alleys and dumpsters too.
Jerseys, shooting jerseys, a basketball and a duffel bag were taken from the car. This left the team without uniforms to play in, in their upcoming game.
On Tuesday, a man entered the main library wearing one of the stolen jerseys. Security followed the man, leading them to the stolen haul lying on the sidewalk at the Unitarian Church.
"It really made the boys feel cared about, made them feel supported, so in the midst of something bad happening, there was a silver lining in there," said Erin Spalding, Brown School coach.
Before finding the missing items, The Brown School raised $1,300 in just 17 minutes for replacements.
Some of the jerseys, and the basketball are still missing. The school will use the money donated to replace the uniforms and clothing that is still missing.
The leftover money will help the program in other ways.
