About 100 feet of electrical cable, valued at $300, was stolen from the Cherokee Indian Fairgrounds on Wednesday, March 2. No buildings were reported broken into, and the cable was attached to the lighting array on the amphitheatre stage. The stolen cable is used to power the lighting array at the stage.
“I think it is sad that there are people out there who have so little concern for the tribe’s property,” said Robert Jumper, EBCI Travel and Tourism manager. “These materials belong to all the members of the tribe and to senselessly destroy it shows a lack of respect for the Cherokee people.”
