Lynn Haven Vandals

By  | 

Lynn Haven police are continuing to search for some vandals who wrecked part of the community recreation complex over the weekend. They have a lot of evidence, but despite a lot of evidence the leads are slow coming. Now, detectives are asking for your help.

Lynn Haven police believe at least two, maybe more people are responsible for the more than $20,000 in damage to the facility, and they are facing some hefty charges when caught.

Police say the vandals stole a bulldozer from a nearby construction site and a tractor from a storage shed on the property, then rammed the vehicles into several fences and buildings.

Then police say the group broke into the concession stand and totally destroyed everything inside, knocking over soda machines and smashing anything breakable. Police say it's lucky the stand was not stocked with food.

Lt. Chris Shuman of the Lynn Haven Police Department says, "We feel like the individuals involved have been talking about it. They have talked to someone who has talked to someone. I'm sure the word is out, we just need that first person to step forward now."

The animal control shelter was one of the buildings damaged in the fray. Police say a pit-bull was stolen from the shelter around the same time.

Detectives think the vandals broke in sometime late Saturday night, early Sunday morning. If you have any information regarding please call Lynn Haven police at 265-4111 or Crimestoppers at 785-TIPS.
