The vandalism also set back the Coosa High School football program as suspects caused heavy damage to the athletic facilities at Eagle’s Stadium.
Saturday morning unknown suspects broke into the athletic facilities building after vandalizing an equipment shed, cutting through a lock with a hacksaw found at the scene to gain entry into the building.
The suspects then ransacked and damaged a number of rooms inside the facility, including the locker rooms, offices, the athletic trainer’s office and equipment room, where an ice machine was pulled down and the pads and helmets were thrown around the room.
Several holes were knocked into the walls and doors pulled off their hinges inside the building, the initial entry was made through a window in the head coach’s office, no major damage was found there.
Graffiti was also found painted on a bus and on the outside of buildings at the football stadium behind the high school.
Damage is estimated between $10,000 and $15,000.
