It's unfortunate that people would do this kind of thing, and I hope they simply mistakenly thought they were handouts. I couldn't imagine anyone in FIRST would intentionally do this, and then not return them after (very likely) seeing this thread.
+1 to the stuff-being-stolen-out-of-the-pit club. If it's not bolted, chained, or epoxied to something, I no longer trust leaving it in the pit.
