BREAKING: Three students arrested in East End vandalism

Local News

Three elementary school students have been arrested for breaking into the East End Little League Field over the weekend.

Police say they smashed their way through the league’s buildings, damaging everything they could get their hands on.

They dumped gallons and gallons of cooking oil, bleach, and cleaning supplies all over the concession stand, and set a couple of fires.

The vandals also broke into the press box and threw out all of the sound equipment. Damage is estimated at about $20,000.

Fortunately, the community, including the Altoona Curve, is stepping up to make things right with a special clean-up day on Saturday.

East End vows to come back just as strong as ever.

“We will have probably 10 to 15 of our staff members over there helping out but I think we will have a lot of community members there helping out,” said Derek Martin, General Manager of the Altoona Curve.

“It’ll never put East End down,” said Carl Adams, Executive Board, East End Little League. “We’ll be back next April ready to play ball.”

Everyone is welcome to help out at the clean-up, this coming Saturday at 10 a.m. at the East End Little League.
