A local group says they've been receiving overwhelming support from people in the community after their fireworks trailer was stolen.

"The Knights of the Shield" lost $20 thousand worth of fireworks on Sunday. But that's only part of the problem for the Oakland Raiders Booster Club.

$12 thousand worth of the club's items were stolen as well. Including a flat screen TV, a popcorn machine, and Raiders' Boosters memorabilia. The community has responded to this crime with support on Facebook.

Albert Deluna said, "The community is pretty outraged -- people are upset."

People in the community are doing their part to help the local club with their donations and support of the fireworks booth  which is still selling fireworks at Blackstone and Ashlan until 10pm Wednesday night.

The Raiders Booster Club was able to re-coop most of their losses, but ask that their irreplaceable memorabilia be returned.
