SAN ANTONIO - Organizers at an East Side community center say they are not sure how they'll recover after their facility was burglarized sometime Wednesday night.

Expensive electronics were stolen from the Get Up Community Center along I-35 near San Antonio Military Medical Center.

The center has been a fixture in the area for 10 years, but had only been in the building on Winnco Drive for about three months. The thieves took two large flat screen televisions, several laptops, tablets and recording equipment, totaling about $160,000.

The incident is under investigation by the San Antonio Police Department.
