Thieves haul off any metal products they can, leaving a radio station scrambling.

The thieves hit KVSS, Spirit 102.7, and hauled off the station's back-up satellite base. The station was waiting on better weather to bolt down the 300 pound base.

It was a huge financial blow.

Jim Carroll, Executive Director at KVSS, says, "We don't receive any funding from any of the dioceses that we are in."

KVSS moved into a building near 129th & A Street in August. Before that, they had been broadcasting for 13 years in North Omaha. They never had any problems in their old neighborhood.

Carroll says, "We keep an eye out on the people here in the neighborhood, we're hoping they keep and eye out as well."

Carroll says the thieves will not stop them from broadcasting, he's just holding out hope they have a change of heart.

Carroll says, "If they haven't melted it down yet, it would be great if it showed back up out here."

The thieves also took a cooper antennae, chain link fence, and LP gas tanks. It's all valued at $2500.00

KVSS, Spirit 102.7, has a new security system. It was donated.
