SAN FRANCISCO, CA (WMC) -

The group who turned San Francisco into Gotham for a day to grant the wish of a 5-year-old with cancer, has become the victim of a heartless crime caught on camera.

Surveillance cameras were rolling outside San Francisco's Make-A-Wish Foundation offices. The video shows to burglars leaving with armfuls of items, including donations to the group. 

One thing the heartless thieves got away with was a customized, autographed scooter. The scooter is signed by San Francisco Giants outfielder Hunter Pence. It recently sold for $40 at auction. 

Make-A-Wish grants wishes to kids with life threatening medical issues.

The San Francisco office made headlines worldwide in 2013 when they granted the wish of Miles Scott. He wanted to be Batman for a day. The foundation, the entire city, and people from across the country helped make that happen by turning the City by the Bay in to Gotham, staging an incredibly elaborate event for Miles. After several years of chemotherapy Miles' leukemia is in remission.
