Five juveniles have been identified in the VANDALISIM of The North Port Police and Fire Training Facility on Price Boulevard this past weekend. The vandals illegally entered the facility stealing a vehicle and causing extensive damage to lifesaving equipment. While inside, the perpetrator(s) graffitied explicit images and racial epithets in several different locations and stole a North Port Fire Rescue pickup truck and trailer on the property, ultimately crashing and causing almost $10,000 worth of damages. Additionally, they damaged three separate lifesaving air packs valued at more than $1,600 each and damaged multiple Police Department training items, including training equipment for our K9 team.
More information will be available as the investigation continues.
