CHICO -- Burglaries on two successive nights have left Caring Veterans Inc., a group that aids homeless veterans, missing about $200,000 in cold weather gear and clothing.

Large storage containers outside the organization's office on Rio Lindo Avenue were broken into Sunday and Monday, with thieves using bolt cutters on loading door locks.

Caring Veterans spokesman Hennie Van De Velde said cold weather gear including jackets, sweaters, boots and about 40 sleeping bags were taken from a container Sunday night.
