A band that ringed up $1 million in donations to help the victims of the earthquake in Nepal said it would help them find the people who stole their belongings and bring them to justice.
The Bandidos MC band of Gypsies is offering a $500 reward for information leading to the arrest of the thieves.
The band members and the band have been in the country for a month to help rebuild after the disaster.
The band members said they want to send a message to those responsible and to give back to their victims.
“It’s really important for us to help those who are struggling and have nothing left,” said band member Yurin Chhetra.
The $1.3 million donation will be given directly to the victims and will go towards the purchase of new equipment for the band and for band members to keep their gear.
“We want to be able to use that money to go to the police department and to the hospital,” said Chhetri.
“If we don’t, we’re not going to get our money.”
Police have been able to trace the thieves, but there are no arrests.
Police have not yet announced any reward.
The first band of Bandidoses to ring up the $1M donation was a group of eight women from the Kathmandu Valley.
