Carrol A "Butch" Thomas Educational Support Center vandalized, suspect truck caught on camera
12News has learned that the Carrol A "Butch" Thomas Educational Support Center was damaged sometime early Tuesday morning. Tire tracks across the football field and some of the surrounding property were discovered early Tuesday.
Our crew on the scene said it appears someone drove around the barriers and onto the football field damaging some landscaping as well as the artificial turf.
Beaumont Independent School District Police Department Sgt. Aqua Delco told 12News the department does not yet have any leads on a suspect or suspects, but they do have video of the suspect truck. She said the video shows that around 1:15 a.m. Tuesday a light-colored or white pickup went onto the field. The video does not show anyone getting out of the vehicle.
Photos from the surveillance video have not yet been released.
Sgt. Delco did not yet have an estimate of how much it will cost to fix the damage.
Anyone with information is asked to call the BISD Police Department at 409-617-7001.
